JONESBORO – Working around the ongoing pandemic that has derailed lots of schedules, the staff and volunteers have published two new issues of Arkansas Review: A Journal of Delta Studies.

The April issue was published in June, and despite a delay, the print publication of this issue is now available.

The issue (volume 51, number 1) includes an essay by Jon David Cash exploring the implications of several different historical accounts of Frontier Arkansas.

The creative works featured in this issue, many set in Memphis, take on a variety of forms, from poetry by Jonathan Rowe, Elizabeth Buttimer and CL Bledsoe, to fiction by Thomas Price, Lou Mindar and Miriam Cohen, as well as a memoir by Abraham Aamidor.

This edition of Arkansas Review also contains a feature by LaDawn Lee Fuhr examining Arkansas State University Museum’s recently opened permanent exhibit on the Rockabilly movement.

The August issue of Arkansas Review also has been published, and the print publication of this issue is now available.

The issue (volume 51, number 2) includes a memoir by Floyd Collins exploring the life and writings of Delta poet Frank Stanford. The creative works featured in this issue take on a multitude of forms, from poetry by Dallas Crow, Brent House and karla k. morton, to fiction by Perrin Drumm, Andrew C. Miller and River Adams, as well as an essay by Cary Holladay.

This newest edition of Arkansas Review also contains an interview by Maureen Richmond with Little Rock native Webb Hubbell, discussing Delta themes in his legal-thriller fiction, and a review essay by Guy Lancaster delving into three works concerning the impact of racial violence on national identity.

Arkansas Review publishes scholarly articles, creative fiction and non-fiction, poetry and artwork pertaining to the Mississippi Delta Region, as well as regular features, such as book reviews and Delta sources and resources.

The journal is published three times per year, under the direction of the general editor, Dr. Marcus Tribbett, assistant professor of English. Single issues are available for $7.50; subscriptions are $20 (U.S.), $25 (Canada); and $26 (elsewhere). Contact [email protected] for copies and subscriptions.
