“Water~Stone Review has the freshness and verve of the very best literary reviews.  You get the feeling, turning the pages, that its harvesting of good writing is intelligently planned and rigorously put together.  In a very short space of time this has become a fine and necessary review.”

Eavan Boland

 “The impressive publication values of the beautiful magazine, Water~Stone Review, are an accurate measure of the quality of work within its pages. It’s a welcome reinforcement along the barricades of American literary culture.”  

Stuart Dybek
