Nashville Review was founded with two guiding principles: that our venue would be inclusive to all forms of storytelling, and that it would be both free and available to everyone. Thus, NR seeks to feature those forms of writing not often recognized as literature—music, comics, film, creative nonfiction, oral storytelling, dance, drama, art—alongside the more traditional forms of fiction and poetry. It is published entirely online, and its readership includes visitors from over 100 countries.
NR is edited by the MFA students at Vanderbilt University. The NR jukebox was designed by Susanna Kwan.
