About Sakura Review:
Situated in the District of Columbia and run by graduate students in the MFA Program in Creative Writing at the University of Maryland, Sakura Review publishes poetry and prose; we are particularly interested in – though not limited to – work that in some way satisfies or reflects our own preoccupation with a city embodied in location temporary; the new surrounded by collections and artifacts; what is documented alongside what is ultimately forgotten.
In addition to publishing the most striking and exciting new material that we can get our hands on, Sakura Review is also an endeavor of design. In accordance with a strong aesthetic perspective, we aim to construct a physical item of interest and creativity that incites a response equivalent to the work it contains. Moreover, we see it as our obligation to surprise, entertain, and perplex (if possible) in any manner that we see fit.
The submission deadline for our Spring 2009 issue is April 15th.
