West Texas Literary Review is a national online literary journal founded in Lubbock, Texas. Its goal is simple: to provide a forum for artists who have something to say. We are looking for poems, flash fiction, essays, and photographs that are thoughtful, deliberate, and authentic. Beyond that, there are no strict requirements. As editors, we carefully curate the content of the Review and hope that you will return from time to time to see what our writers have to offer. We also encourage you to submit your own work; all of our content comes from submissions and we would be thrilled to publish first-time writers as well as established voices.
