Pine Hills Review (ISSN 2470-8321) is an online literary journal with a national focus that publishes artful, honest, and compelling work by new and established writers, from fiction, nonfiction, and poetry to visual art, interviews, and experimental, cross-genre work. We love irreverent, fun, different, and surprising work that tries to do something new. Established in 2014 at The College of Saint Rose and named for the Pine Hills neighborhood in Albany, NY, Pine Hills Review remains committed to creating an inclusive space for writers from all backgrounds. Our staff is composed of volunteers from The College of Saint Rose, as well as around the world.
