Editorial Focus

The Columbia Review is the oldest collegiate literary magazine in the country. Since its inception, it has published eight Pulitzer Prize winners, and a winner of the Nobel Prize. The Review publishes twice a year and is available for free on Columbia’s campus and on the magazine’s website. Unlike other campus magazines, the Columbia Review does not specialize in the work of any particular gender, ethnic group, or university division.
