Cold Creek Review is an online literary journal that explores the depths of troubled emotion. Its mission is to publish contemporary poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and art that awaken the beauty of anguish and suffering, while maintaining a sense of creative urgency. Our staff meets biweekly to discuss each submission individually. We make sure that each submission receives the attention and consideration it deserves. Clarity and deliberation are important to us. Final decisions are made after discussions have been shared among the editors.

We are a literary journal that is keen on diving into the dark, the misunderstood, and the wild.

Do you know the feeling in your skin when you step in a cold current, ice breaking and senses fogged? That is our mission.
