Book Review Announcement

Now accepting books for review.

Alley Cat by Jim Ross

Fiction, creative nonfiction, literary fiction, poetry, experimental

Our editors are especially interested in reviewing new books published by independent and university presses. We also have a soft spot for books written by writers in Appalachia and the American South or those who are deeply rooted in those places. However, we’re also very open to reviewing great literature from Brooklyn, London, San Francisco, or wherever else great English-language writing is done. We aim to build community and encourage submissions from writers from underrepresented or marginalized communities. 

The book reviews section of each issue will feature:

  • A conversation between two writers, focusing on a newly published book.
  • A writer’s exploration of the writing, revision, and publishing process of their new book.
  • Reviews of books.

Change Seven welcomes two new book review editors:

How to Get Your Book Reviewed: Authors and publishers who wish for us to consider reviewing their work or scheduling a feature essay or interview should query the book review editors first. At this time, we do not review self-published work. Sending an ARC does not guarantee your work will be reviewed.
