• Bennington Review has won the CLMP 2017 Firecracker Award for Best Debut Magazine!

  • Bennington Review is a stunning re-debut, having previously launched in 1966 and 1978, full of innovative and risk-taking prose and poetry. Its commitment to diverse voices cements its status as a journal to watch. We look forward to seeing what new artists its editors discover.
