Editorial Focus

Red Wheelbarrow (since 2000), formerly Bottomfish, believes that everything that crosses the transom merits deep attention. We believe that beauty and meaning will inhabit wildly varied and unexpected tones and styles. Our journal is well produced, eclectic, tough minded, open, lyrical, passionate-socio-politically engaged-and we value quiet & craft, the gaze into nature, the deft image, the startling leap, meditative consciousness—and great use of language. We honor and crave all of those qualities-in art-and in one another.
