|Edited by Barbara Westwood Diehl|
Baltimore Review is an American literary magazine founded in 1996. It publishes short stories, poetry, creative nonfiction, interviews, and items of interest to those interested in creative writing. The Baltimore Review, a literary journal of poetry and fiction, was founded by Barbara Westwood Diehl as a publication of the Baltimore Writers Alliance. The journal grew to become a nationally distributed journal, and later became an independent nonprofit organization. Susan Muaddi Darraj then led the journal from 2003 to 2010, expanding contributions to include creative nonfiction and interviews. In 2011, Barbara Westwood Diehl resumed leadership of the journal and now serves as Senior Editor with Kathleen Hellen. The BR became a Web-based journal in 2011, and the first Web issue was launched in February 2012. Web-published work will be collected in print issues. Work that first appeared in the Baltimore Review has been shortlisted for the Pushcart Prize and been noted in Best American Short Stories and other anthologies.
