Poetry Daily featured book About The Georgia Review:
Since its inception in 1947, The Georgia Review has grown steadily to its current position as one of America's premier journals of arts and letters. Each quarterly issue offers a rich gathering of stories, essays, poems, book reviews, and visual art orchestrated to invite and sustain repeated readings. Is it any wonder that over seventy percent of our readers add our issues to their permanent libraries? Or that The Review received the 1986 National Magazine Award in Fiction for stories by Mary Hood, Lee K. Abbott, and Gary Gildner.

Writers featured in The Review range from Nobel laureates and Pulitzer Prize winners to the most deserving newer voices — including many who have never published before. Such well known figures as Eudora Welty, John Edgar Wideman, Eavan Boland, William Stafford, Judith Ortiz Cofer, and Philip Levine join emerging writers like Gordon Johnston and Brad Barkley in the quarterly that Magazines for Libraries calls "one of the best bargains in American publishing."

"The best of them all is the amazing Georgia Review: modestly priced, superbly conceived and edited, filled with unusual and colorful material.... and much marvelous fiction and poetry. It's the supreme example of what the producers of the little magazines can accomplish."
The Christian Science Monitor

"E.M. Forster remarks in Howards End that 'Beethoven's Fifth Symphony is the most sublime noise that has ever penetrated into the ear of man. All sorts and conditions are satisfied by it.' Much the same could be said of the writing in The Georgia Review."
