Now under the editorship of Meghan O’Rourke, the Yale Review is being reimagined for the 21st century! Join us for our launch of the 200th-anniversary issue, with Monica Youn, Idra Novey, and more. A reception with complimentary drinks and food to follow brief readings!
This free event is part of our Big in Print series, which toasts the dedicated founders, editors, and contributors behind the literary journals introducing us to the next big thing in fiction.
At The Yale Review, we aim to engage diverse minds, experiences, and points of view in enduring conversations and exceptional writing—to “keep the road open” as former editor Wilbur Cross once wrote, “for candid statements of different standpoints from writers of exceptional ability.” A pre-eminent journal of literature and ideas, The Yale Review has been around in one for mand another since 1819; in its modern embodiment, it published writers such as Thomas Mann, Virginia Woolf, José Ortega y Gasset, Stanley Cavell, Robert Lowell, John Hersey, Bayard Rustin, Adrienne Rich, James Merrill, and Rita Dove. Today, under the editorship of writer and critic Meghan O’Rourke, the Review is ambitiously reimagining itself for the 21st century, with a new website, forthcoming podcasts, and an event series at Yale University and at large.
