Part one of two.  

Summer reading lists are a time honored tradition. Schools sometimes require them, magazines and journals share their favorites, and avid readers page through countless blogs and feeds to find new and exciting writers to thumb through. Ah, the abundance of summer.


The current issue of the Broadkill Review is up here.  We are reading fiction for the November and December issue, and reading poetry for the January and February issue.


Linda Blaskey, poetry editor, Dogfish Head Poetry Prize coordinator

Two poetry collections:  Marie Howe's Magdalene; and Nathan McClain's Scale.  

One novel: Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness.  

And one collection of essays: Ellen Gilchrist's Things like the Truth: Out of My Later Years.
