The American Poetry Review was founded by Stephen Berg in 1972 in Philadelphia. By developing efficient, inexpensive production methods and a distribution network that combined newsstands, bookstores, and subscriptions, it became the most widely circulated poetry magazine in the U.S. within the first five years of publication. In the 1970’s, APR established a reputation for publishing a broad range of material: interviews, literary essays and essays on social issues, translations, fiction, reviews, and poetry by the most distinguished authors, by writers working in new forms of contemporary literature, by younger poets now at the center of American poetry, and by writers from other cultures.
APR has continued uninterrupted publication of The American Poetry Review since 1972, and has included the work of over 1,500 writers, among whom there are nine Nobel Prize laureates and thirty-three Pulitzer Prize winners.
