Published/Hosted by The University of Nebraska at Kearney.
The Platte Valley Review is an international journal of Poetry, Prose, Photography, Artwork, Environmental and EcoCritical Essay. The magazine is currently within auspices of the Reynolds Endowed Chair of Poetry and the Creative Writing Emphasis in the English Department of the University of Nebraska at Kearney. The Reynolds Chair and Creative Writing Emphasis hosts the Platte Valley Review, Reynolds Review, Reynolds Reading Series and the Honoring the Sandhill Crane Migration Literary Retreat and Festival. Sandhill Cranes migrate to their spring apex just outside Kearney, Nebraska annually in March. This largest migration of any earthly species has occurred an estimated 45 to 60 million years. The Kearney area apex numbers 600,000 arriving birds. Traditionally, numerous Indigenous philosophies and languages, including written, were influenced by these cranes over thousands and thousands of generations. UNK’s English and Creative Writing disciplines honor this migration, pattern of life and landscape, and tribute the literary and philosophical grace given our geographic home and history by this impressive seasonal visitation.
