The Bare Life Review

A member of Intersection for the Arts.

The Bare Life Review is a literary journal committed to publishing work exclusively by immigrant and refugee authors, and to showcasing the immense—indeed, infinite—value and diversity of this literature. We accept work from foreign-born writers living in the United States and from writers living abroad who currently hold refugee status. The journal will be published biannually, with a print circulation of roughly 2,500. Each issue will be composed of fiction, personal essay, and poetry, as well as an editorial essay to provide context and draw connections to the journal’s mission.
