NR1This spring The Nashville Review will release its inaugural issue. The journal is supported by Vanderbilt University and will be published triquarterly. Though the list of work included in this first issue hasn’t been released yet, we were pleased to see some FWR favorites as Contributing Editors: Kevin Wilson, whose collection Tunneling to the Center of the Earth was one of our 2009 favorites; Salvatore Scibona, author of The End, whose interview with contributor Michael Hinken we published in March of 2009; and Patrick O’Keefe, author of the The Hill Road, which won the story prize in 2006.

The journal is currently seeking work for future issues. The next reading period closes March 1. From the Editors:
