Steel Toe Review publishes an annual print issue (except some years when we don’t) and an online issue whenever we feel like it. We publish mainly literary short stories and poetry, but also essays, creative non-fiction, one-act plays, and visual art. We favor Southern writers and Southern themes, but we are willing to consider any writing of quality. We are interested both in the decay of traditional Southern culture and in the continuing evolution of Southern culture. Most of all we strive to represent the diversity of the modern South and try to avoid stereotypes and cliches.
