About South Loop Review

South Loop Review: Creative Nonfiction + Art is a literary journal that 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.

SLR is not accepting submissions.

South Loop Review: Creative Nonfiction + Art is published annually by the Nonfiction Program within Columbia College Chicago's Creative Writing 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 a nonfiction faculty member along with a panel of editors that include nonfiction faculty, graduate and undergraduate students. Below is a list of former and current editors.

SLROnline is no longer 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. SLROnline was co-edited by Jenny Boully and Josalyn Knapic.
