About White Whale Review

Published biannually, White Whale Review is an online literary magazine devoted to the single-minded pursuit of that which eludes easy capture: "beauty"; "truth"; the fictions that window or curtain each. Those skeletally abstract words for ideas best suggested in tangible form, what we want is a dialogue between art and the world lodged hard in the throat of things. White Whale Review stands as a forum for poetry, short fiction, and nonfiction from both established and new writers, favoring quality over genre or theme. The successful work is an incandescent fiat—firefly or lightning  brief, maybe, but lux nonetheless—against the dusk and dimming terrain of modern existence.
