Since its founding in 1996, 2River has been an independent press. As such, 2River neither seeks nor accepts funding or financial support from any source. In addition, all issues of The 2River View and all entries in the 2River Chapbook Series are free to read online, to listen to, and to download as PDFs.
Innovative and unique to 2River are the Make the Mag and Chap the Book features. You can download a press-ready file of any issue of 2RV or any chapbook. You can then print the file double-sided, fold and stitch it, and thereby hold and read your very own hand-held publication.
Because of the quality and range of contemporary poetry at 2River, because of the recordings of poets reading their work, because of the art in every publication, and because of the crowd-driven method of on-demand print publication, Web del Sol has ranked 2River among the top 50 literary sites and literary magazines in the country.
