Harvard Review Nominated for Utne Award for Third Year

Harvard Review 27 (Fall 2004)

January 3, 2005 - Utne, a national magazine that celebrates the best of the independent press by reading and reprinting from 1,500 independent magazines, newsletters, blogs and more, announced the nomination of Harvard Review for an Utne Independent Press Award in the category of Best Essays.

This is the third award in the essay category for Harvard Review in as many years. Essays from Harvard Review by André Aciman and Kyoko Mori appeared in Houghton Mifflin’s prestigious Best American Essays series in 2003 and 2004. Harvard Review has also contributed fiction and poetry to Best American Short Stories 2003 and Best American Poetry 2002, as well as the 2004 Pushcart Prize Anthology.

The Utne Independent Press Awards (www.utne.com/uipa) recognizes the excellence and vitality of alternative and independent publishing. Utne's editors select nominee publications through their extensive reading process and careful examination, rather than a competition requiring entry forms and fees. In this way, Utne honors the efforts of small, sometimes unnoticed publications that provide innovative, thought-provoking perspectives often ignored or overlooked by mass media.

Since 1989 the Utne Independent Press Awards have showcased the best of the independent press in categories ranging from best new title to political, environmental, cultural, and personal life coverage. "Harvard Review stands out as an important independent media voice. We are pleased to honor your accomplishments with an Utne Independent Press Award nomination," said editor Karen Olson.

Harvard Review is published twice yearly, in spring and fall, and is available at better bookstores across the United States or by subscription by contacting the Harvard Review at 617-495-9775, harvrev@fas.harvard.edu.

Harvard Review editorial staff includes: Editor Christina Thompson; Don Share, poetry; Grace Dane Mazur, fiction; Tom Cole and Robert Scanlan, drama; Prudence Steiner, book reviews; Roger Kizik, visual arts; and Katherine Bell, editorial assistant.
