Lakeland Community College Launch Online Literary Magazine

The first issue of the Chagrin River Review is available online

Faculty members at Lakeland Community College have created an online literary magazine that publishes original short fiction and poetry.

The first issue of the Chagrin River Review features three works of fiction and seven poems that were selected from more 120 submissions. The writers come from as faraway as California and Maine, as well as Ohio.

“Taking a literary magazine to the Internet is a great way for us as educators to reach a larger audience,” said one of the Review’s editors, Angela Weaver, assistant professor of English at Lakeland.

Although, one goal of the project is to give emerging and established writers a platform where they can share their work with literary enthusiasts, another is to teach Lakeland students that they don’t need to be a household name to have work recognized.

“I hope my students will find encouragement for their own writing and communication ambitions as they read poems and stories from hardworking, accomplished writers,” said Weaver.

The authors featured in the Chagrin River Review include: Barbara Brooks (NC); Joan Colby (IL); James B. DeMonte (OH); Jéanpaul Ferro (RI); Sean Forbes (CT), William Greenway (OH); Susan Grimm (OH); Mercedes Lawry (WA); David Oestreich (OH), and Joann Smith (NY).

The Review is accepting submissions, regardless of theme, for its second issue, to be published in the spring 2013.

The deadline to submit pieces for consideration is Dec. 31. Submissions must be made online here.
