Shenandoah Makes List for “Voracious Readers”

Do you like to read? Do you like lists? Would you like a thoughtfully curated list of things to read? Then check out 100 Essential Sites for Voracious Readers, which had the good sense to include Shenandoah: The Washington and Lee Literary Review on said list.

The list is a feature of the Masters in English website, an aggregator of programs that offer online graduate studies in English. It came up with the list in response to the growing popularity of e-readers and divides it into five categories, with Shenandoah falling under “Literary Magazines.”

The latest issue of Shenandoah, Spring 2013, features a special portfolio of New Zealand poetry edited by Lesley Wheeler, the Henry S. Fox Professor of English, and two students, seniors Drew Martin and Max Chapnick. Here’s an article about their collaboration.

W&L faculty and students (including novelist Tom Wolfe ’51) founded Shenandoah in 1950. It’s been going strong ever since. It transformed into an online-only format in the fall of 2011; Rod Smith, a writer-in-residence at W&L, has edited it since 1995.
