About South Loop Review
South Loop Review: Creative Nonfiction + Art magazine publishes essays and memoir, lyric and experimental forms, non-linear narratives, blended genre, graphic memoir, photography and art. We look for personal essays and memoir with fresh voices and new takes on presentation and form. As well, we look for photography and art that creates a strong resonance. See our Submissions tab for our submissions guidelines.
South Loop Review: Creative Nonfiction + Art is published annually by the Nonfiction Program within Columbia College Chicago's English Department. The premiere issue was published in 1997 and contained some of the best student-generated work from the creative nonfiction and literature programs in the college. Beginning in 2003, South Loop Review began to solicit work nationally and engage in the public discourse on creative nonfiction by publishing creative nonfiction exclusively for a nationwide audience.
South Loop Review: Creative Nonfiction + Art is edited by Rose Blouin along with a panel of editors that include nonfiction faculty, graduate and undergraduate students.
SLR is currently closed for nonfiction and art/photography submissions. Our reading period is September 1 - January 1. Your manuscript will not be returned to you if you submit to us outside of these months.
After a long hiatus, we have determined that SLROnline will no longer be a part of South Loop Review. We are very fortunate to have run five issues and had the pleasure of publishing such fine writers. You can find all our SLROnline issues on our archives page. If you have any inquiries, please send them to email@example.com.
