Publishers Description: upstreet, based in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts, is an award-winning literary annual containing the best new fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction available. The first ten issues feature interviews with Jim Shepard, Lydia Davis, Wally Lamb, Michael Martone, Robin Hemley, Sue William Silverman, Dani Shapiro, Douglas Glover, Emily Fragos, and Robert Olen Butler.

upstreet is an independently owned and published, nationally distributed magazine. It was founded by Vivian Dorsel, formerly managing editor of The Berkshire Review for eight years, who selected the members of the editorial staff for their love of the written word, their high standards of literary judgment, and their desire to offer a voice to prose writers and poets who might not find publication opportunities in more mainstream journals. upstreet number four won the Bronze Medal in the Anthologies category of the 2008 Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPY).
