New Orleans Review entered its 50th year of publication in 2018. Today, the magazine publishes online, and continues to include both established and emerging writers. Student interns remain at the forefront of the magazine, learning the ins-and-outs of literary editing by doing it firsthand--reading and commenting on submissions, publicizing the magazine at book fairs and online, conducting literary interviews, and writing book reviews.
In celebration of its golden anniversary, New Orleans Review published its first book, Interviews from the Edge: 50 Years of Conversationsabout Writing and Resistance (Bloomsbury, 2019). Edited and introduced by former editors Mark Yakich and John Biguenet, Interviews from the Edge presents a selection of interviews drawn from the magazine's archive that dive head-first into the most enduring aesthetic and social concerns of the last half century.
