The Colorado Review was launched in 1956 with a stellar roundup, including Langston Hughes, E. E. Cummings, and Henry Miller. The 200-page journal, whose pieces have appeared in Best American Poetry and other anthologies, publishes fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and book reviews. CR is published three times a year by the Colorado State University.
