Editorial Focus

Hot Metal Bridge, the literary magazine created by M.F.A. students at the University of Pittsburgh, publishes two issues annually: fall and spring.

Hot Metal Bridge privileges no particular aesthetic or school of thought; we simply seek the most accomplished, surprising work in contemporary literature and visual art.

We also run [in brackets], a literary podcast in conjunction with WPTS.
