Hi there. Welcome to


Won't you stay in our orbit a while?

Who We Are

Our Mission

Conceived as a meditation on the lunar orbit, Farside Review is a quarterly online literary magazine focused on publishing emerging authors—because, in an age of unprecedented connection, the ingenuity of new voices captivates us in the same way the elusive “farside” of the moon does. 

In that vein, we aim to be a home for creative work that rediscovers the familiar, infusing universal themes with singular perspectives. We want to uncover the infinitely faceted nature of our art, our love, and our tragedies, and we welcome pieces that remix myths and experiment with form. 

So give us you—the inertia of memories that smear into your futurity, your crumpled edges of identity, your old stories threaded into new skins. We’re ready for you to subvert our expectations.
