One of the half-dozen best literary journals.
— Poet Laureate Daniel Hoffman

Boulevard's mission is to publish the finest in contemporary fiction and poetry as well as definitive essays on the arts and culture, and to publish a diversity of writers who exhibit an original sensibility. It is our conviction that creative and critical work should be presented in a variegated yet coherent ensemble—as a boulevard, which contains in one place the best a community has to offer. 

Announcing our fall 2017 edition of Boulevard!

In Boulevard No. 97, Joyce Carol Oates illustrates the struggles of abortions in 1987; Albert Goldbarth on Claude Monet, death, breath, and much more; Colin Fleming dives into the fates of grown-up maverick child detectives; B. J. Hollars examines the psychology of Oppenheimer; and Christine Spillson discusses the last public hanging in America and struggles with her family connection.

And our fall symposium on campus protests with essays by Jim Craig, Megan Giddings, Ena Selimovic, Andrew Weinstein, and Robert Zaller. Plus, the 2016 Short Fiction Contest for Emerging Writers winning entry, Anastasia Selby’s “Certain Fires,” on fighting wildfires in California and the sexual tensions of mixed-gender crews.

Much more! Fiction and essays by Bipin Aurora, Gonzalo Baeza, Daniel M. Mendoza, and Robert Zaller. Poetry by Dilruba Ahmed, Howard Altmann, Angela Ball, Benjamin S. Grossberg, James Lineberger, Owen McLeod, Jenny Molberg, Mary Morris, Richard Newman, Hannah Louis Poston, Katherine Robinson, Natalie Scenters-Zapico, Joanna Solfrian, Mark Wagenaar, and Jane O. Wayne. And, finally, dynamic cover art by Tony Philippou.
