Welcome to The Timberline Review

 The Timberline Review is an all-volunteer literary journal operated by Willamette Writers. While we are currentyl closed to submissions, we will open again in the fall to work in the following categories: poetry, fiction (flash, short story, novella, and novel excerpt), creative nonfiction (essay and memoir), critical commentary (annotation, book review, literary analysis, and craft instruction), drama, hybrid, graphic novel, and visual art (b&w and color).

Join us to celebrate

On June 7th, we will celebrate Issue #6 at Broadway Books in Portland, Oregon, with readings from our authors. Join us to celebrate!

Submissions are now closed

Our editors are busy reading submissions and preparing the Timberline Review Issue 7, with the theme of Rebirth. Look for publication in early August, 2018. Thank you for reading and supporting our journal. We would particularly like to thank our volunteers and staff who come together to create this publication. You can find out more about all they do here.
