Raleigh Review Vol. 5, No. 1,
Spring 2015 is here!




Raleigh Review
Vol. 5, No. 1, offers poetry by Mark Smith-Soto, Joseph Bathanti, and Ellen Bass, among others. And its fiction features Carrie Knowles, Randall Brown, and Petrina Crockford.

Geri Digiorno returns with more stunning cover art, and the full-color interior art by Laurence Holden is expertly paired with the writing.

It all adds up to a lush reading experience--a literary oasis.
