Launched in 1986, Redivider is a literary journal produced by the graduate students in the Writing, Literature, and Publishing program at Emerson College in the vibrant literary hub of Boston. Published digitally in the autumn and spring, we welcome fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and graphic narrative submissions from emerging and established writers. And if you’re wondering about the name—it’s a palindrome!
Each year, we host the Blurred Genre Contest and Beacon Street Prize. Winners of these contests receive cash prizes, and their work is featured online in a subsequent issue of our journal.
Recently, Redivider shifted to a digital platform. This change is sparked by the urgency we feel, along with many others in the publishing industry, to move toward a more diverse, inclusive, and accessible publication. Publishing our issues online will allow the voices of our contributors to reach more readers as our web content will be free for all. Additionally, we will drop submission fees most of the year to become more accessible to contributors.
