The Vanderbilt Review


The Vanderbilt Review is Vanderbilt’s official undergraduate literary and arts journal. The Review includes refereed 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 is a digital publication. We’re excited about showcasing the creative expression of poets, writers, and artists in new ways and expanding access to The Review to alumni and appreciators across the country!

Roughly 25 students make up The Review‘s editorial board. More than 100 students, alumni, and University affiliates submit work for consideration of publication. The Review solicits assistance from professors in the English and Art Departments as judges for its annual awards.  The Vanderbilt Review staff works in the Student Media Newsroom in Suite 130 of Sarratt Student Center.
