Publisher’s Description: The Saint Ann's Review, published twice yearly by Saint Ann’s School, an independent, secular school in Brooklyn, New York, is an eclectic compendium of the best-crafted writing around. Eschewing trendiness and rigid convention alike, this visually striking magazine provides a forum for the most diverse voices. We like a good argument in prose, audacity in poetry, tension through control in each. We consider translation an important part of our endeavor. Our interviews of artists are conducted by artists, interviews of writers (of E.L. Doctorow, of Edwidge Danticat) conducted by writers.
Contributors have included writers Mary-Beth Hughes, Thomas Beller, Mary Gordon, Paul Lafarge, Jane Avrich and Diane Greco; poets Dennis Nurkse, John Hollander, Harvey Shapiro, Susan Wheeler, Mervyn Taylor, and Anna Ziegler; artists Louise Bourgeois, Lola Schnabel, Carroll Dunham, Chitra Ganesh, and Katherine Merz; reviewers Meghan O’Rourke and William R. Everdell.
Of The Saint Ann’s Review, Philip Levine writes, “What you’re doing is wonderful...floating a true literary magazine out of Brooklyn and presenting the old and the new...” Richard Ford sends these words: “The magazine entirely is very impressive.” And Edwidge Danticat writes simply, “It was wonderful reading.”
