Windward Review is an annually published print literary journal showcasing narratives unique to the South Texas Coastal Bend and the border region.
We seek bold and memorable works. We invite risk-takers, traditionalists, community writers, academics, and undergraduates to send us their best work. We look for well-crafted poetry and prose that expands and redefines human truths found in our region. We also look for art that is memorable enough to speak for itself. We especially invite submissions from those who can speak to any of the many dynamic borderland experiences, including bilingual work and translations.
Past writers include Rossy Evelin Lima, René Rodríguez Soriano, Katherine Hoerth, Octavio Quintanilla, Juan Manuel Pérez, Edward Vidaurre, Alexandra van de Kamp, Carolina Hinojosa-Cisneros, Gary Worth Moody, PW Covington, Jo Reyes-Boytel, and many more.
