Mud Season: when the snow melts, the ground thaws, and everything in New England turns to mud. It’s the time when the inner work of creation is done, before it comes to fruition. This journal aims to celebrate that hidden labor.
Mud Season Review is an international literary journal affiliated with Burlington Writers Workshop, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Vermont that brings free writing workshops to writers. Our all-volunteer staff is dedicated to creating a journal that mirrors the openness of these workshops, in which writers of all genres support each other’s love of writing and reading, provide vibrant, kind, insightful feedback, forge significant creative relationships, and demonstrate that the pursuit of excellence in their craft doesn’t have to be formal, exclusive, or anonymous. We aim to publish strong, skillful writing from far and wide. In doing so we seek to discover voices new to us and new to publication.
