The Paterson Literary Review
International magazine features fiction, poetry, interviews, and essays.
“A great poet once said that art is not life because ‘Art has its own dynamic. It is a runaway train which society either boards, or does not board.’
Editor Maria Mazziotti Gillan decided from the beginning that the Paterson Literary Review would board that train and bring with it all voices, all people, not just a few—not only the dominant cultures, but each writer who has a genuine story to tell. We thank her for an all-inclusive literary magazine with a high degree of excellence—a journal that is global as well as deeply personal. “—Grace Cavalieri, Producer & Host: “The Poet and the Poem from the Library of Congress”
