About

South 85 JournalSouth 85 Journal is a semi-annual online literary journal run by the Converse College Low-Residency MFA Program.  We publish fiction, non-fiction, poetry, book reviews and blog posts by new, emerging, and well-established writers.  While we consider all quality work that follow the submission guidelines, we are especially interested in pieces that demonstrate a strong voice and/or a sense of place. We nominate for annual Best of the Net anthology and Pushcart prize.


So, write like mad, and if it’s good, we want to see it.
