The Berkeley Poetry Review has been published at the University of California, Berkeley, since 1974.  We’ve featured the work of both new and established poets and writers, including Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Yusef Komunyakaa, Brenda Hillman, Czesław Miłosz, Cole Swensen, Robert Hass, Ishmael Reed, Thom Gunn, and many others from the Bay Area poetry community. We seek language-based and/or experimental writing, translations, art, and (less frequently) essays and interviews, and are particularly interested in work that complicates prevailing conceptions of race, gender, sexuality, ecology, poetic form, and narrative voice. We release our MIDTERM chapbook each December, and our annual issue the following May.
