Please consider adopting The Georgia Review as a course text for a cost-effective resource rich in diverse voices, providing students the experience of being a literary citizen invested in contemporary literature. In the past two years, work from our issues has won Pushcart Prizes, National Magazine Awards (winners in Profile Writing and Fiction, finalist in General Excellence), and the PEN/Robert J. Dau Short Story Prize for Emerging Writers. We publish established writers who have received some of the most prestigious honors in the literary world as well as debut authors seeing their very first stories, essays, or poems in print. Moreover, we have special issues and features that focus on specific themes, such as diasporic communities of the southeastern United States, the U.S. Census, Southern queer literature of the 1990s, and the data portraits of W. E. B. Du Bois.
Our student subscription rate of $25 gives you two issues in a semester, and students can enjoy the rest of the volume year on their own. Single issues are 50% off, when classroom orders are processed directly through us. Adoption is free for classrooms of incarcerated people and/or those struggling with financial hardship. Classroom adoption also comes with the opportunity for a virtual visit by an editor as well as additional teaching resources, if requested.
Whether you’re looking for an alternative to the usual anthologies or want to share with your students the experience of discovering literature hot off the press, give it a shot with GR. We say that literary journals are the lifeblood of literature. We know that literary conversations start in periodicals, above all else. Classroom discussions are enriched when students can read, talk about, and appreciate literary history as it unfolds.
