Lily. A monthly Online Literary Review, returned.

Lily was created in late 2003 by Susan Culver as a way to share the beauty of poetry, fiction and photography in a free and easily accessible way. Over the next four years, Lily was published monthly online - offering the creative work of newcomers and veterans alike.

In those four years, Lily published interviews with, and work by, writers such as Pushcart Prize winner, Beth Ann Fennelly; National Book Award nominee, Alicia Ostriker; Pulitzer Prize poets, Paul Muldoon and Claudia Emerson; and former U.S. Poet Laureate, Ted Kooser. Conversely, Lily has also been the first publication credit for a number of emerging poets and writers.

After a three and a half year hiatus, Lily has returned with a renewed energy and the hope of once again sharing the beauty of words and images.

You can read the new issues here: Lily Volume 5:
- Issue 1: May
- Issue 2: June (includes an interview with poet+editor Parneshia Jones)
Issue 3: July (with Sherry O'Keefe and Lisa Zaran)

About Lily:
Lily is edited by Susan Culver and Indigo Moor. Their mission: "We believe that art can originate anywhere and responds favorably to quality writing that shows us the world in a new way. We are moved by photography that captures the unconventional angle or recognizes everyday moments that shouldn't be overlooked."
