Who founded Pigeon Review?

Pigeon Review was started by an artist and a writer looking to make a home for stories and art that evoke a sense a place; pieces that may have been overlooked for their simplicity or deemed mundane. Pigeon Review strives to be a place that fosters community, values its contributors and every person who submits, and promotes honesty and kindness.

Art Editor: Darcy Melton (she/her) is an award winning painter and illustrator with work in galleries, magazines, and private collections around the world.

Fiction Editor: Nathaniel Mellor (he/him) is a published short story writer, writing teacher, and editor. He also writes about traveling at: www.onlyabag.com

Pigeons exist all over the world yet they are often overlooked. Like artists and writers, they are beautiful, iridescent, quirky, and resourceful. Some birds find more fame than others, but we see the pigeons in all their glory. 

Of course, pigeons might not be as majestic or smart as other feathered friends, and they fly headfirst into windows. But how else can we deal with barriers in our own world except by flying into them headfirst, over and over again, until we break them?
