First established in 1981 in Charleston, SC, as Encore Literary Arts Magazine, the journal relocated to Charlotte, NC, in 2004  and dedicated itself to publishing a wide variety of poets and writers from around the Southeast and US and also featured photography and artwork. After three issues in Charlotte as Encore, the journal subsequently changed its name to West Trade Review in 2009

WTR strives to put forth the best contemporary poetry, fiction, and artwork and publishes a mix of established and up and coming writers.
