The Windsor Review is a long-standing journal that began in 1965, featuring both scholarship and creative writing. Published biannually by the University of Windsor Faculty of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences and the Department of English and Creative Writing, the journal currently features poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and review essays.
Over the years the journal has evolved with technology, moving from print to digital formats, yet always remained behind an access barrier.
