The Bellevue Literary Review

“No human thing is more universal than illness, in all its permutations, and no literary publication holds more credibility on the subject than the Bellevue Literary Review.” —


¬†Bellevue Hospital, the oldest public hospital in the United States, has been witness to nearly three centuries of human drama. In this tradition, the Bellevue Literary Review–a forum for illuminating humanity and human experience–was created in 2001. The BLR publishes fiction, nonfiction, and poetry that touch upon relationships to the human body, illness, health and healing. Danielle Ofri is the editor-in-chief, and cofounder of the BLR. Subscription and submission information can be found at

See actors Kelly AuCoin and Carolyn Baeumler perform fiction and poety of the BLR as part of “Reading the Body: Live!”
