The Limberlost Review
A Literary Journal of the Mountain West
Edited by Rick & Rosemary Ardinger
Limberlost Press announces publication of The Limberlost Review: A Literary Journal of the Mountain West (2021 Edition) edited by Rick and Rosemary Ardinger. The new 360-page literary annual carries on the spirit of a literary journal begun in the 1970s and 1980s that was revived in 2019 to feature more poetry, fiction, essays, artwork, and other personal writing by some award-winning contributors.
“The reception of the Limberlost Review in 2020 was so gratifying, and this new 2021 Edition, at 360 pages, was an adventure to pull together,” says Rick Ardinger in the Introduction. “This edition features work by veteran writers and new voices. Artwork by seven amazing artists, and a gallery spread by an award-winning photographer elevate the entire volume you hold in your hands.”
