Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
The mission of The Hopkins Review is to publish today’s vital voices and visions in literature, culture, criticism, public-facing scholarship, and the arts. We celebrated our 15th year of continuous publishing with a commitment to creative excellence and its dynamic, diverse, and inclusive present and future. The Hopkins Review is a partnership between two venerable literary entities, the Writing Seminars at Johns Hopkins University (the country’s second-oldest degree-granting creative writing program, est. 1947) and the Johns Hopkins University Press (the country’s oldest continuously running university press, est. 1878). Curated by editor in chief Dora Malech and an editorial staff of talented emerging writers honing their own craft in the Writing Seminars, The Hopkins Review endeavors to feature a unique blend of tradition and innovation reflective of both its deep roots and vibrant intergenerational team. We strive to bring the international, national, and local together under one cover, contributing to Johns Hopkins University’s broader mission of “knowledge for the world” by engaging international voices and conversations alongside our nation’s most exciting established and emerging writers and platforming the rich artistic and literary community of our home city of Baltimore on that same global stage. We believe in building a local, national, and international community of readers that connects and coheres around a shared love of literature and culture.
