Now in its 39th year, the Northern New England Review is a literary journal published by Franklin Pierce University in Rindge, New Hampshire. NNER is a creative forum for writers exploring the Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont region. If you live here, were once from here, lost or found your heart here, or are searching for it among our cedar forests, cold lakes, and rocky coasts, NNER has the poems, short fiction, and creative nonfiction you want to read. NNER is available in the periodicals section of every public library in New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont—more than 200 locations across northern New England.
