Who We Are

Redivider is run by graduate students at Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. We are passionate about creating space for both emerging and established authors and artists to showcase their work. The journal was founded in 1986, originally as the Beacon Street Review, and renamed as Redivider in 2004. We currently publish online twice per year, as well as a yearly Blurred Genre summer mini issue. We do not publish work from current Emerson College students, faculty, or staff.

Redivider seeks previously unpublished works from emerging or established authors and artists. We are excited to publish underrepresented voices as well as “offbeat” texts, art, and hybrid works. Please see each division’s guidelines on our Submission’s page.


Our mission at Redivider is to foster a creative community and accessibility in our literary journal space. We crave fresh, off-beat, and inventive art and words that challenge what defines what should be valued both within and across literary genres.

We feel that sharing writing and art in an accessible manner, in both online and print formats, supports our mission to build community with those outside our Emerson cohorts. Because we are formed from graduate programs across Emerson, we provide a door to opportunities for entering the publishing world in all different capacities and roles. We work to continue to publish with authors from all backgrounds. We want to be a space for authors to share vulnerable, high-stakes, and connected perspectives in their stories and art that may have once been thought to be unwelcome in the literary world.
