Barrow Street Inc. is a nonprofit literary arts organization that was started in Greenwich Village, NYC in 1994 to provide community outreach and host literary events featuring emerging and established poets. Since 1998, after nonprofit incorporation, we have published the prizewinning journal, Barrow Street. Each year we also publish a prizewinning poetry collection chosen by a distinguished contest judge. Select finalists are also eligible for publication and are reviewed by an all-volunteer board of editors, contributing editors, and outside reviewers. We publish up to four collections a year.
