About the Review
Coal Hill Review is an online journal dedicated to publishing poetry and prose by both emerging and established writers. We hope to gather a range of diverse voices and styles and to explore work outside the traditional limitations of popular trends and printing costs.
The Review takes its name from Coal Hill, otherwise known as Mount Washington, Pittsburgh, PA, the home of Autumn House Press. Where once people mined its rich coal seams, we now mine for poetry.
We encourage you to review our poetry submission policy and submit your work.
Please also visit our publisher Autumn House Press, an independent, non-profit corporation which has the mission of publishing and promoting poetry and other fine literature.
