About

upstreet, based in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts, is an award-winning literary anthology containing the best new fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction available. upstreet is an independently owned and published, nationally distributed magazine. It was founded in 2005 by Vivian Dorsel, formerly Managing Editor of The Berkshire Review for eight years, who selected the members of the editorial staff for their love of the written word, their high standards of literary judgment, and their desire to offer a voice to prose writers and poets who might not find publication opportunities in more mainstream journals.
