About Us

Packingtown Review was launched in 2007 at the University of Illinois at Chicago by Ph.D. students in the English department. Since then, it has featured poetry, prose, drama, literary scholarship and cultural commentary by new and established authors not only from the US, but from Germany, Romania, Greece, Egypt, France and Holland. In 2013, Packingtown Review re-launched as an independent online publication. This blog chronicles the goings-on of authors previously and currently featured in PTR, reviews by our editors, as well as updates on forthcoming issues of the journal. Welcome.
