Welcome to River Styx

Since 1975, River Styx has published an international, award-winning journal of poetry, fiction, essays, interviews, and art. The magazine has consistently been one of the first to publish some of the most important writers of our time, from U.S. Poet Laureates (Howard Nemerov, Mona Van Duyn, Rita Dove, Robert Hass, and Ted Kooser), to Pulitzer Prize-Winners (Yusef Komunyakaa, Stephen Dunn, and Ted Kooser), to National Book Award Winners (Marilyn Hacker, Howard Nemerov, Lisel Mueller, Lucille Clifton, and Robert Hass), to Nobel Laureates (Derek Walcott and Czeslaw Milosz). The magazine publishes tri-annually, hosts a monthly reading series at the Tavern of Fine Arts in St. Louis, and sponsors annual contests for poetry and micro-fiction.

Subscriptions

River StyxRiver Styx embodies the best of non-profit independent literature. As an independent magazine, we earn just enough to keep publishing not trendy or politically connected work but what we love most—thoughtful yet accessible, unpredictable yet moving literature and art.  We will always adhere to the lean and mean production ethic and keep the youthful energy that's made us, as Small Press Review says, "a beacon of light on which deserving voices dance."
