Ostrich Review

We are an online journal of poetry, storytelling, and art. Founded in 2012, we have six fantastic regular issues—plus a special issue we’re really proud of—and we are hard at work on our seventh. If you’d like to be considered for inclusion in our next issue, send us something awesome via our submission manager.

We also take blog content submissions. If you’d like to contribute a Tuesday Grab Bag or Fifty Word Friday, you can do that through our submission manager as well.
