Digital Edition: In case you didn’t get the memo, the Gettysburg Review is now available digitally in three formats: ePDF, which replicates the print version, ePub, and Mobipocket. The latter two are “reflowable” formats for use on e-readers and Kindle devices. You can purchase single copies and digital subscriptions at our Online Shop, but you can also find copies at 0s&1s and ShelfWise. Please, check it out and spread the word. And to those of you who are print loyal, don’t worry: we will continue to be primarily a print publication.
That’s it for now. We always like to hear from our readers, so please let us know what you think of the latest issue. If you are a user of social media, say hello and like us on Facebook. As always, thanks for your support, and keep reading.
Contributor Michelle Boisseau’s newest collection Among the Gorgons is the recipient of the Tampa Review Prize for Poetry. Judges praised her work for its “graceful and unexpected leaps from personal to mythic, tender to satiric, and tragic to comic.
It is our pleasure to report that another Gettysburg Review contributor has won accolades for her debut collection: Allegra Hyde has received the University of Iowa Press’s John Simmons Short Fiction Award for her collection Of This New World, which will be released this coming October.
Gettysburg Review author Robert Oldshue has won the 2016 Iowa Short Fiction Award for November Storm. Bennett Sims, judge for the award, celebrates Oldshue as a writer of “stories that are as rich and self-complicating as novels.” We couldn’t agree more.
