Spring is almost here!

Painters, pantoums, and pine trees. Buddhism, babies … and a road trip to Greenland. What do they all have in common? They’re all in the spring issue of The Southern Review, along with new fiction from Stephen Dixon, David James Poissant, and Rachel Yoder, nonfiction from Beth Ann Fennelly and Peter LaSalle, and poetry from Ange Mlinko, Sharon Olds, and David Hernandez. We’re putting the finishing touches on the issue now, and it should be arriving in mailboxes mid-April. Subscribe today and don’t miss a word.
