Publisher’s description: Launched in 2002, Hotel Amerika is already firmly established as an exciting venue for both well-known and emerging writers. We publish exceptional writing in all its forms, so it’s not uncommon to find traditional work alongside the experimental. We strive to house in our pages the most unique and provocative poetry, fiction and nonfiction available. Work with a quirky, unconventional edge—either in form or content—is often favored by our editors. HA is an eclectic journal that attracts an equally eclectic audience.
Published twice a year, Hotel Amerika has printed the work of such writers as John Ashbery, Andrea Dworkin, Leonard Kriegel, Natania Rosenfeld, Dean Young, Bob Hicok, Billy Collins, Maxine Kumin, Brian Teare, and Lisa Samuels. Most recently, Kim Dana Kupperman was included in Best American Essays 2006 for her essay, “Relief.”
