For three decades, we’ve been proudly produced by the graduate students in the Writing, Literature, and Publishing Department at Emerson College. We began as Beacon Street Review when our magazine launched in 1986 in a nod to our address. With a new headquarters in 2002 we relaunched as Redivider. Seizing upon the intersection between the creative writing and publishing programs housed at Emerson College—situated within the writing and publishing hub of Boston—Redivider has established itself as a coveted venue for writers and artists nationwide.
