For over half a century Shenandoah has been publishing splendid poems, stories, essays and reviews which display passionate understanding, formal accomplishment and serious mischief. Founded in 1950 by a group of Washington and Lee University faculty members and students, including Tom Wolfe and William Hoffman, Shenandoah has achieved a wide reputation as one of the country's premier literary quarterlies and has been praised by USA Today as "a 'little' magazine notable for not being little in its aspirations." Recent issues have featured work by Stephen Dunn, Mary Oliver, Rodney Jones, Alyson Hagy, Erin McGraw and Chris Offutt.
