New Review


The Southampton Review’s 2019 summer/fall issue is now available for purchase. This is the 25th issue, and will it be loaded with original art and writing pieces.

“We changed the cover layout — moving to a full-bleed image on the front,” stated editor-in-chief Emily Gilbert. “We updated the fonts and now use more sans serif to give the review a more contemporary look. We increased the margins; we reformatted the table of contents and moved the bios to the back.”

The issue is highlighted by a cover photo by Christopher Stott and writing pieces by Alicia Mountain, Massoud Hayoun, and Lisa Locascio.

“I really love Lisa Locascio’s essay, ‘Elegy for Western Time.’ She had a book published last year called ‘Open Me’ and I read it and loved it and emailed her for work, and she sent us a very non-traditional essay about living in LA,” added Gilbert.

The writers that are published in the review have won renowned prizes, including the Frank McCourt Memoir Prize.

This year’s summer/fall issue will officially come out on July 13. Copies of the review can be purchased for $15 at and can be found at local libraries throughout the East End.
