Thirteen years ago, a small group of very experienced writers got together to form Delmarva Review. Our goal, to seek and publish the best writing and writers we could find, enabling Delmarva’s finest writers to compete with and stand side-by-side with writers from all across the country and world. We wanted to create a world-class literary review.
Today, with the steadfast support of the Talbot County Arts Council and a devoted editorial team, we have published the original new work of 390 writers from 42 states and 14 countries. In all, half the writers are from the Chesapeake and Delmarva region. As a result of our success, and our recognition as a one of the better national journals, Delmarva writers are receiving recognition they may never have received otherwise. 72 have been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and others for mentions in several “Best of” series anthologies. Many writers have told us how important it was to have the support of the Review as they pursued their journey toward excellence.
