Hot Metal Bridge, the literary magazine created by MFA students at the University of Pittsburgh, publishes two issues annually: fall and spring. We have published work by Russell Banks, Tom Perotta, Maxine Hong Kingston, Dan Chaon, Michelle Wildgen, Ewa Chrusciel, Charles Baxter, Sherman Alexie, Sherrie Flick, and Don Lee, but we also maintain an emphasis on finding new material from emerging and previously unpublished writers.
Hot Metal Bridge privileges no particular aesthetic or school of thought; we simply seek the most accomplished, surprising work in contemporary literature.
