 The Sucarnochee Review, named for the Sucarnochee River that runs near the University of West Alabama, has been published annually by the Department of Languages and Literature since 1974.  Beginning in 2015, the journal has become one devoted to publishing the some of the finest poetry and fiction from new and upcoming undergraduate writers. Poised to publish our inaugural undergraduate edition, we are excited to promote our journal as an opportunity for fresh and exciting creativity.


Our journal is largely student-led, and the creative minds from our university look forward to reading and responding to your work.

Poem of the Month

An Ember In The Cold by Clairel Estevez

With you, I have learned

That when love

Is truthful and pure.

Is much like to retain spring

In one's heart,

And have no fear

That Winter's gale, may wilt it.
