Collection celebrates ‘Review’ anniversary

Stories Wanting Only to Be Heard Selected Fiction From Six Decades of The Georgia Review
Edited by Stephen Corey with Douglas Carlson, David Ingle and Mindy Wilson
University of Georgia Press

The Georgia Review is celebrating its 65th anniversary with Stories Wanting Only to Be Heard, a new edition of the short fiction published across the decades.

The collection includes the work of well-known writers, many of whom were not yet so well known when first selected for publication by The Georgia Review. It also highlights compelling work from writers whose names may not be as familiar but whose stories are equally compelling and memorable.

Published at UGA since 1947, The Georgia Review has become one of America’s most highly regarded journals of arts and letters. It seeks a broad audience of intellectually open and curious readers-and strives to give those readers rich content that invites and sustains repeated attention and consideration. Pulitzer Prize winners and never-before-published writers are equals during the manuscript evaluation process for the journal, whose goal is to identify and print stories, poems and essays that promise to be of lasting merit.

A launch party and reading will be held March 28 at 7 p.m. at Ciné, 234 West Hancock Ave.
