The Flagler Review is an award-winning literary journal published by English Department students at Flagler College. FLARE seeks to publish both up-and-coming and established writers in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, as well as artists.
At FLARE: The Flagler Review, we believe the foundation of all greatness is creativity. The divine spark of imagination that breathes life into literature is what we live for. Seeking the best in poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and art, our dedicated staff drives this passion into each page of our publication. Our purpose is to uncover beauty, spirit, and fire, and this is propelled by the originality and innovation of writers both near and far. For each issue, our mission is singular: to find the brightest sparks of creativity and fuel their flame.
