About The Copperfield Review

A quick look at the Top Ten of the N.Y. Times Best Seller List for 9/13/15 reveals three historical novels. Let’s face it—readers love historical fiction.

NYT Top Ten

The Copperfield Review was founded in 2000 by Executive Editor Meredith Allard as a way to create an online home for readers and writers of historical fiction. Since then, The Copperfield Review has been featured in Writer’s DigestNovel and Short Story Writer’s MarketKiller StartupsDuotrope, The Los Angeles Times, and Las Vegas Seven Magazine. It was named one of the top sites for new writers by Writer’s Digest and it has received the Books and Authors Award for Literary Excellence.

In every quarterly edition, The Copperfield Review publishes the very best from up and coming as well as established authors of historical fiction. The editors are proud that CR has been the first publication for many talented new writers from around the world. Each edition features new historical short stories, historical poems, and history-based nonfiction articles. On our website you’ll find interviews with historical novelists (including interviews with John Jakes and Barbara Taylor Bradford) as well as reviews of the latest historical novels to catch our attention.

Our imprint, Copperfield Press, will be publishing our first anthology of historical fiction in November 2015.

Why Advertise in The Copperfield Review?

Earth Map CopperfieldThe Copperfield Review is read across the globe. We love to watch the map turn blue as the journal is discovered by more and more readers and writers of historical fiction. While the majority of our readers are in the U.S., readers in other English-speaking countries such as the U.K., Canada, and Australia are frequent visitors. India is our next biggest market, along with countries in Africa and South America. The Copperfield Review is truly an international journal.

During the course of one issue (12 weeks per quarterly issue), The Copperfield Review averages 100 page views a day, though that number can balloon to 400 page views a day after a new edition is posted. New editions are published on the last day of January, April, July, and October.

After 15 years, the number of readers continues to grow with every edition. At a time when literary journals are in decline, The Copperfield Review has been gaining in popularity. Since moving to our new website in 2012, The Copperfield Review has had over 160,000 visitors.
