About Del Sol Review

     by Michael Neff

Del Sol Review was started in 1998. It was first known as "Editor's Picks" and served the purpose of highlighting select work from print journals on WebdelSol.Com. But as time pushed forward, and submissions actually began to arrive, EP evolved into Del Sol Review. Since that time, DSR has published twenty issues and shows no signs of stopping.

Contributors to DSR include Peter Johnson, Maxine Chernoff, Paul West, Linh Dinh, Holly Iglesias, Robert Hill Long, Diane Williams, Deborah Oline Unferth, Michael Martone, Daniel Bosch, Stephen Burt, Forrest Gander, Pamela Gemin, Daniel Moolten, Meg Tyler, and many more.

Take your time and persue our archives. Great literature never goes stale.
