About Us

The Vanderbilt Review is Vanderbilt’s official undergraduate literary and arts journal. The Review includes curated work in fiction, poetry, drama, art, and photography from students, alumni, and University affiliates.

The Vanderbilt Review was first published in April 1985 as a consolidation of three previous showcases for student work: The Poetry Review, The Photography Review, and Scrivener. The journal has received prestigious awards for its professional work and its format. In past years, it has featured interviews and work from writers such as Robert Penn Warren, Roy Blount, Jr., and Bobbie Ann Mason.

The Vanderbilt Review staff works in the Student Media Newsroom in Suite 130 of Sarratt Student Center.
