About

As of September 2017, New Limestone Review, formerly Limestone, is the literary journal of the University of Kentucky Department of English’s M.F.A. Program. We publish monthly online issues from September to May, and an annual ‘best of’ print edition.

Our Literary Heritage

Established in 1986, Limestone published work from internationally-recognized poets Seamus Heaney and Paul Muldoon, and from many noted Kentucky writers, including Wendell Berry, Gurney Norman, Ed McClanahan, Frank X Walker, Maurice Manning, Nikky Finney, and Holly Goddard Jones.

We are pleased to continue in Limestone’s tradition, and to bring groundbreaking works of literary art to the web and to a national audience.
