We’re proud of CutBank’s thirty-nine years as Montana’s foremost literary magazine, founded in 1973 by the Creative Writing program at the University of Montana and helmed initially by favorite literary son William Kittredge.
We publish two print issues a year of compelling poetry, fiction, and literary nonfiction by established writers and new voices alike. We’re global in scope, but with a regional bias.
We publish two print issues a year of compelling poetry, fiction, and literary nonfiction by established writers and new voices alike. We’re global in scope, but with a regional bias. Over the years, we’ve been privileged to feature work by Wendell Berry, Louise Erdrich, Richard Hugo, Seamus Heaney, James Welch, Patricia Goedicke, James Lee Burke, Chris Offutt, Aimee Bender, Steve Almond, and a number of other writers whose work we’re fond of. That’s the joy, we think, of both publishing and reading a publication like CutBank: discovering and developing a fondness for new work.
