        Naugatuck River Review is dedicated to publishing great narrative poetry. We are open to many styles of poetry, looking for narrative that sings, which means the poem has a strong emotional core and the narrative is compressed. There is a 50 line limit. We publish twice a year, Winter and Summer. The Winter issue is the contest edition.
