The mission of The Baltimore Review is to showcase Baltimore as a literary hub of diverse writing and promote the work of emerging and established writers.
The Baltimore Review was founded in 1996 as a literary journal publishing short stories and poems (we also publish creative nonfiction now), with a mission to showcase the best writing from the Baltimore area, from across the U.S., and beyond. Our mission remains just that.
In 2012, The Baltimore Review began its new life as a quarterly, online literary journal. In our online format, we can now bring that fine writing to the world’s attention, more frequently. We can also explore new ways to bring the world of writers and writing to the reader’s attention.
This doesn’t mean that we’ve fallen out of love with the printed book. Work accepted for online publication is also included in annual print issues.
