Oak Orchard Review is named for a river which flows through various towns and hamlets of Genesee and Orleans County. More than simply a body of water, a river is a thing that sustains, connects, and nourishes the land, the body, and the spirit. Our journal is meant to similarly sustain its artists, authors, and readers. We seek writers and artists who feel a physical or emotional connection to the Western New York region, and who are compelled to share their poetry, stories, artwork, and photography. It is our mission to inspire and connect with our readers; to showcase Western New York's most talented and inspiring artists and writers; to promote artistic endeavors in our community; and to encourage and recognize emerging artists and writers.
