Harpur Palate: a Literary Journal

Harpur Palate: a Literary Journal

Established in 2001, Harpur Palate is a literary journal published twice yearly by students at Binghamton University. The project has long been a joint effort of graduate and undergraduate students in the English Department, and is now led by PhD students with the support of undergraduate interns--who earn college credit and learn about literary publishing at the same time.

The first issues of Harpur Palate published only fiction and poetry. The magazine currently accepts submissions for poetry, creative nonfiction, and fiction, but this open access archive will also include visual art, photo essays, and interviews from past issues. The magazine runs three annual contests with cash prizes: Creative Nonfiction (Sept 1-Nov 15), John Gardner Memorial Prize in Fiction (Feb 15-April 30), and the Milton Kessler Memorial Poetry Prize (Sept 1-Nov 15).

In its back issues, Harpur Palate has works from such notable authors as Major Jackson, Lydia Davis, Sherman Alexie, and more. Future editors of major publications have also served on the staff at Harpur Palate, such as current co-editor of North American Review J.D. Schraffenberger. Now that the magazine has made the transition to an all-online publication, the editors look forward to publishing new and innovative works on our online platform, Harpur Palate
