Bennington Review literary magazine cover image

Housed at Bennington College, Bennington Review is a diverse treasure trove of poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and film writing shared with readers in print twice a year with many contributions available to read online. While editing the Winter 21-22 issue, Michael Dumanis, with Katrina Turner, references Robert Duncan’s “Often I Am Permitted to Return to a Meadow,” and writes, “we kept considering the simultaneous fragility and power of the open field, the purity of nature and the purity of the imagination, environment and memory. As a consequence, much of the poetry and prose in our new issue offers meadows of nature and nature of thought, literal meadows and figurative ones for us to wander into, clearings with flowers and refuges from noise, everlasting omens of what is.”

Writers featured in this issue include poetry by David Baker, Leila Chatti, Adam Clay, Cynthia Cruz, Lightsey Darst, Melissa Ginsburg, Johannes Göransson, John Kinsella, Joanna Klink, Mark Levine, Cate Marvin, Sara Lupita Olivares, January Gill O’Neil, Robert Ostrom, Allan Peterson, Kevin Prufer, Dean Rader, Natasha Rao, Elizabeth Robinson, Martha Silano, Stella Wong, and Julia Wong Kcomt; fiction by Amber Caron, Sarah Rose Etter, and Lee Upton; nonfiction by Lesley Jenike and Arra Lynn Ross; a film essay by Mee Ok Icaro; Mary Ruefle in conversation with Mark Wunderlich; and a selection of erasures and collages by Mary Ruefle.
