Yalobusha Review is a journal of new writing, founded in 1995 and operated by the graduate writing program at the University of Mississippi. We seek to showcase work that alters or subverts mainstream forms of expression–work that is, in a broad sense, experimental, though that takes many forms. We believe the reading experience should be a kinetic one, and to that end, we favor art that has its own source of energy, drawn from tonal individuality, linguistic texture, and above all, a sense of exploration.


We are a journal that publishes voices from around the world while also paying mind to the voices at home in our small Mississippi town. In September 2020, we launched the Letters to the Supervisors initiative to amplify the calls from local community members to take down the confederate statue on Oxford’s Square.
