Publisher's description: The Boiler began in 2011 by a group of writers. We publish poetry, fiction, and nonfiction on a quarterly basis. We like work that turns up the heat, whistles, and stands up to pressure.
Our writers include authors such as Thomas Lux, Bruce Bond, Joseph Millar, Cynthia Cruz, Emma Bolden, Marina Rubin, Paul Lisicky, Raena Shirali, and others. The Boiler prides itself in being an advocate of the writers we publish because we believe in their work.
"The Boiler is filled with solid writing that breaks the boundaries of traditional writing and that surprises by heading toward cliché and then rocketing away from it."
—Kirsten McIlvenna, NewPages
"The Boiler publishes some of the liveliest writing I’ve seen online today. I say ‘liveliest’ because each piece has its own movement, its own way of toying with my boundaries, and its own way of carving itself into place. The Boiler is here, is turned up, and is publishing pieces I continue to fall for, no matter how many times I go back to them."
—Alex Guarco, The Adirondack Review
