Editorial Focus

Breakwater Review was founded in 2009 and is run by students of the University of Massachusetts Boston MFA program. It publishes digitally two times a year.

Tips From the Editor

Breakwater Review seeks to promote literature that doesn’t stand still. A Breakwater is “a barrier built out into a body of water to protect a coast or harbor from the force of waves.” But as a literary journal, we’re more interested in the waves than the barrier. We’re interested in publishing writers of all backgrounds and contributing to a literary culture that also doesn’t stand still, a culture of waves crashing against and breaking barriers, making way for new and exciting voices to be heard.
