Rathalla means “home of the chieftain upon the highest hill” in Gaelic. Rathalla Review was founded in the fall of 2012, and is named after the main building on Rosemont College’s campus.

Rathalla Review is the literary magazine published by the students of Rosemont College’s MFA in Creative Writing and MA in Publishing programs. Our mission is to give emerging and established writers and artists an outlet for their creative vision in our online and print publication. We publish the best fiction, creative nonfiction, flash fiction, poetry, and art selected from a nationwide community of writers and artists. Rathalla Review’s staff, comprised of MFA in Creative Writing and MA in Publishing candidates, merges the creative arts and the business of publishing into a shared voice and vision.
