Tampa Review & Tampa Review Online
Founded as University of Tampa Poetry Review in 1964, Tampa Review is Florida’s oldest continuously published literary journal. Our name was officially changed to Tampa Review in 1987 when we expanded our contents from poetry to include the current mix. Today the journal is published in print twice a year in a unique and elegant hardcover format by the University of Tampa Press. Tampa Review Online began publishing literary and visual art on the Web in June 2012. It was originally designed and edited by graduate students in the MFA in Creative Writing program. In 2014 the online and print versions were more closely linked under a single staff and came together on the Web as part of Project MUSE Commons. There it remained until 2017, when Tampa Review Online moved to a permanent home on the Web at TampaReview.org. Here you will find all of the work published by TROnline during its first two years and by Tampa Review Online during the MUSE Commons period and beyond.
The design of our printed journal embraces a tradition of excellence in book arts hearkening back to illuminated manuscripts. The editors believe that contemporary works resonate most powerfully within a great tradition. Many of these historic craft traditions are preserved on campus in the Tampa Book Arts Studio.
As a gallery space in print, Tampa Review promotes awareness of multi-dimensional relationships between outstanding contemporary literature and contemporary visual arts. We advocate each act of reading as an experience of insight, outreach, and delight.
