Western Waldo Review is based in western Waldo County, Maine.

Our mission at Western Waldo Review is:

To showcase and publish poetry and art of global rural spaces, sensibilities, experiences, and life.

What do we mean by “rural”?

Merriam-Webster defines rural as “of or relating to the country, country people or life, or agriculture.” However, our definition is a bit broader than that. Whatever rural means to you, however you experience rural landscapes, people, and life— that is what rural is and that is what we want to see in your writing and art. Truly, we are open to your interpretation and look forward to seeing your work.
