Gently Read Literature has been providing thoughtful, in-depth critical reviews of contemporary poetry and literary fiction every month since 2008. GRL provides a space for independent and university publishers/presses and authors to promote their literary endeavors. 

Gently Read Literature is a free literary magazine and plans to stay that way. However with your fundraising help, GRL can continue to offer professional reviews from impassioned writers and readers for years to come. The funds raised here will go towards paying our freelance contributors, improving GRL's format, and expanding the audience for informed book reviews.

The literary community desperately needs critical outlets that are neither superficial nor overly academic, Gently Read Literature sees itself as helping to fill this space.
