Original Fall 2013 Fredericksburg Literary Review

You may now purchase the first issue of Fredericksburg Literary Review. We have also ordered copies for the studio, which should arrive by November 20. We hope you will support Water Street Studio by purchasing your copy from us.

Though we did not include the youth poetry in the book, we will continue to hold a space online for our younger writers. We love your work.

Thanks, again, for your contributions and support. Look for announcements after the first of the year for the next submission period.
