The Columbia Review is published twice a year and is available free on the Columbia campus and on the magazine’s website. Unlike other campus magazines, The Columbia Review does not specialize in the work of any particular gender, ethnic group, or university division. We accept and publish submissions from writers and artists not affiliated with Columbia University.

Previous contributors to the Columbia Review have included Nobel Prize winner André Gide, former United States Poet Laureate Daniel Hoffman, and eight Pulitzer Prize winners – John Ashbery, William Carlos Williams, John Berryman, Herman Wouk, Richard Howard, Louis Simpson, Steven Millhauser and Mark Van Doren.

Other contributors have included John Dewey, Allen Ginsberg, Terrence McNally, Thomas Merton, David Lehman, Stephen Orgel, Paul Gallico, Jim Jarmusch, Meyer Schapiro, Herbert Gold, John Erskine, Robert Gottlieb, Ad Reinhardt, John Hollander, Robert Lax, Paul Goodman, Robert Giroux, Luc Sante, W.C. de Mille, Guy Endore, Mortimer Adler, Charles Feldman, Jacques Barzun, Whittaker Chambers, Cornell Woolrich, Lionel Trilling, Irwin Edman, John Giorno, Ron Padgett, and Louis Zukofsky.


The Columbia Review is sponsored in part by the Arts Initiative at Columbia University. This funding is made possible through a generous gift from The Gatsby Charitable Foundation.
