Global City Review is the base from which this literary metropolis has been built. Our entire backlist is preserved here. Each of our precious print issues can be accessed by clicking the corresponding covers below.
Our first digital issue, Legacies, can be found here.
The first print issue of Global City Review was released in the spring of 1993. Edited and produced by a cooperative of writers, its members grew and changed over the years, as both esteemed writers in the field alongside graduate students worked on it to create a literary forum and community that reflected our artistic and human values. Great thanks is due to The Simon H. Rifkind Center at The City College of New York for their early support of our publishing enterprise, and later, The Titus Foundation for generous funding. Several individuals kept us going in lean times, and we thank them, too. We thank our subscribers for their support, our contributors for their writing. And most of all we thank the writers, too numerous to mention, who joined us in creating and sustaining Global City Review for over twenty years. We owe them gratitude, though for each of us the collective itself and the published work were our own rewards.
“The exciting Global City Review…is a rich treasury of contemporary social thought and artistic expressions, defending a humanistic view of the individual in a complex society.”
“A few more journals like Global City Review, and literary periodicals just might get a bit more news rack respect.”
Los Angeles Times Book Review
“Each issue of this truly small (4 1/8″ X 6 3/4″) journal is constructed around a single theme…while maintaining a mix of post-modern literary criticism and progressive world views.”
