Aim & Scope
Western Humanities Review is a triannual journal of contemporary literature & culture housed in the University of Utah English Department. The journal publishes poetry, fiction, nonfiction, art, creative and scholarly essays, and work that resists categorization.
The journal was founded in 1947 and has since published a variety of work from emerging and established writers. Work first published in WHR has been reprinted or cited in O. Henry Prize Stories, Best American Short Stories, Best American Essays, Best American Poetry, Pushcart Prizes: Best of the Small Presses, and featured on Poetry Daily.
Currently, two issues a year are devoted to art, poetry, and prose, and one issue explores a special topic with scholarly essays.
