About Us

Since its founding in 1988, The Kudzu Review has established a reputation for publishing high-quality creative works both written and produced by undergraduate students at the Florida State University. Recently The Kudzu Review has expanded its borders to receive and publish the pieces of undergraduate students from around the country.  Its mission has always been to foster a more united community of student artists and writers, and to share these students’ works within the Florida State University community and beyond. With the help of a faculty consulting adviser, The Kudzu Review publishes twice a year, showcasing the best of what FSU and all undergraduate students have to offer.

The Kudzu Review publishes fiction, poetry, literary nonfiction, art, and photography.

Alumni from The Kudzu Review have gone on to study in MFA programs such as Columbia, Arizona, and Virginia Tech, and their work has been featured in magazines such as the Columbia Poetry Review, the Los Angeles Review, and The New Delta Review. Students published in Kudzu have also had their work featured in Bennington College’s plain china, a national anthology of Undergraduate writing.
