Editorial Focus

Published by the University of La Verne, PRISM REVIEW is an annual journal of well-crafted contemporary poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction from established and emerging writers. Alongside its literary works, PRISM REVIEW also publishes interviews with relevant authors and reviews of contemporary works, giving readers the chance to peer through a variety of lenses at the present and future worlds of literature.

Tips From the Editor

Our taste is deeply varied: in fiction, we're moved by the succinct prose of Ernest Hemingway and the fresh wackiness of Aimee Bender, by the ethereality of Italo Calvino and the ruminations of Alice Munro. We enjoy poetry that is witty and poetry that is moving,  especially poetry that's both. Mark Strand, Brenda Hillman, and Mary Jo Bang are among the many poets we adore. Non-fiction? See our preferences in fiction and poetry. In other words, we're open to any and many styles - what matters most is that your work is surprising, thoughtful, complex.
