Begun in 1915 and located on the campus of Southern Methodist University, Southwest Review is the third oldest, continuously published literary quarterly in the United States. Selections from Southwest Review have been reprinted in volumes of The O. Henry Prize Stories, The Pushcart Prize, The Best American Short Stories, The Best American Essays, The Best American Poetry, New Stories from the South, and elsewhere.
"The Southwest Review, under Willard Spiegelman's enlightened editorship, is one of our most urbane and broad-ranging literary journals. It keeps a great tradition alive and in so doing makes a distinguished, invaluable, indeed necessary contribution to the ongoing life of our culture." - Jonathan Galassi
