Kenyon Review Launches Online Literary MagazineGAMBIER, Ohio (May 16, 2008) The Kenyon Review announces the launch of its new online literary magazine, KR Online.Kenyon Review editor David Lynn describes the new magazine as "a lively bridge between the world of the very best print literature and the emerging potential of the electronic universe."
"We'll be offering innovative stories, poems, essays, memoirs, and reviews online,"
The overwhelming volume of submissions to The Kenyon Review in recent years has meant that the magazine could accept only a tiny percentage of the work that it receives, and the period between acceptance of a submission and publication in the magazine has grown to almost two years. "By launching KR Online," observed Associate Editor Sergei Lobanov-Rostovsky, "we hope to publish more of this wonderful writing, and to do so in a more timely fashion. The new magazine will be available free at the Kenyon Review website, so the work published there will have the potential to reach thousands of new readers."
