Established in 1980, The Stonefence Review is Dartmouth College’s premier journal of arts and letters. This is a quarterly literary magazine, created and edited by Dartmouth students, for Dartmouth students, and for the community as well. Below Bartlett Tower, on the wooded hill adjacent to campus where the Lone Pine once stood, there’s a bronze statue of Robert Frost. Frost attended Dartmouth briefly in his day, and it’s partly from his poem “Mending Wall” that we take our name. The Stonefence Review is dedicated to providing a vital forum for the intellectual, literary, and artistic communities of Dartmouth College. More info on our history can be found here.
SUBMISSIONS: Stonefence welcomes submissions of poetry and fiction, any incarnation of visual art, as well as any hybrid of any of the above. Creative non-fiction, micro-fiction, prose poems, photographs — digital or otherwise; digital images of paintings or sculptures, video pieces… You get the idea. Anything goes. In addition, we’re looking to begin publishing insightful critical essays. Our authors and artists might be any member of the Dartmouth community: Professors, employees, graduate students — but most of all, and we think, most importantly, Undergraduate students. We look for work from authors with broad imagination, but we also know that sometimes it’s best to write what you know. In other words, we’re a college lit mag, and proud of it. All submissions are considered anonymously.
Each term we send out e-mails to campus soliciting submissions and setting our deadlines. In the future, we’ll post them here, as well. But look for that e-mail, and also feel free to e-mail submissions as attachments any time to:
Want to get involved in the editorial process? Please consider joining one or more of our editorial boards: Poetry, prose, and art. Each board meets twice a term to go over submissions, give suggestions for revision and decide what to publish. No experience is necessary and all classes are welcome, but a passion for the arts and a critical insight is key. Also, you’re welcome to be on an editorial board and also submit to that board — your work will be considered anonymously, just like everyone else’s. Being on an editorial board can be a great way to get feedback about your work from an engaged audience.
Thanks for reading.
