Publisher’s description: The Boiler is a journal founded in 2011 by a group of writers at Sarah Lawrence College. We publish poetry, essays, and fiction by emerging and establish authors. We like work that whistles, turns up the heat, and puts literary and social matters under pressure.
Recent authors published include K-Ming Chang, Anthony Cody, Julia Kolchinsky Dasbach, Dorothy Chan, Diannely Antigua, Paul Tran, Jessica Abughattas, Melissa Wiley, Claire Wahmanholm, Michael Torres, Maya Phillips, Eloisa Amezcua, Mai Der Vang, Chelsea Dingman, Cortney Lamar Charleston, Kayleb Rae Candrilli, Julie Marie Wade, Tatiana Ryckman, and others.
“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
