About Harbor Review
Harbor Review is a small online space for poetry and art. We publish two issues a year in the winter and summer. We are interested in work that shocks and inspires. We are interested in strange and beautiful language, image, and metaphor. We are committed to giving diverse voices a home. New or experienced, we want to hear from you.
