Colorado Review's only commitment is to the publication of serious poetry, fiction, and non-fiction. We do not publish genre fiction nor do we subscribe to a particular literary philosophy or school of poetry or fiction. We are determinedly eclectic and intend to stay that way. At the same time, we are concerned by the shrinking markets for new writers and seek to reserve a percentage of our pages for writers who have not previously published in our magazine.Colorado Review
