The Winter 2021 issue of Little Patuxent Review launches digitally on January 31, 2021.

While the pandemic will once again keep us from gathering in person to celebrate the launch of the issue, we can’t wait to share it with you. In lieu of an in-person reading, many of the contributors from this issue submitted video readings of their pieces. Those recordings are available on our YouTube page.

Take a look at the fantastic lineup of contributors below, and order your copy of the Winter 2021 issue. Annual subscriptions are also available online.

Note: If you purchase the digital version, we will email you the journal after processing your payment.
