BREAKWATER REVIEW was founded in 2009 and is run by students of the University of Massachusetts Boston MFA program. We currently publish digitally three times a year.

 

A breakwater is a barrier of rocks or concrete, built out into a body of water to protect a coast or harbor from extreme weather and hazardous conditions. In a world that oftentimes feels shattered and broken, we seek to publish both established and (more importantly) new voices from diverse backgrounds. Words that unite us against the storm—challenging our own perceptions of reality in fresh and interesting ways.
