Editorial Focus

Bennington Review is published twice a year in print form, Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter. We aim to stake out a distinctive space for innovative, intelligent, and moving fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, film writing, and cross-genre work. In the spirit of poet Dean Young’s dictum that poets should be “making birds, not birdcages,” we are particularly taken with writing that is simultaneously graceful and reckless.

Tips From the Editor

Please send us one submission at a time and wait until hearing back before sending a second submission. If submitting poetry, please submit 3-5 poems as a single document. If submitting prose, please make sure your submission is double-spaced.
