The Timberline Review, a new literary journal published in the Pacific Northwest, seeks previously unpublished short fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and essays. We’re looking for writing that is skillful, yes, that has something new to say, yes, but that also says it in a way that, as Emily Dickinson once said, makes us feel as though the tops of our heads were taken off.
