The Brooklyn Review was founded almost thirty years ago and is run by the students of the Brooklyn College MFA Program. In the past, we have published works by Wayne Koestenbaum, Mac Wellman, Young Jean Lee, Lisa Ko, and Ann Lauterbach, among others.

We publish one print issue a year, in the spring, and digital content on a rolling basis.
