About

West Trestle Review is inspired by a VIDA panel where the speakers encouraged participants to make space for women and nonbinary writers in the literary landscape as a form of subversion. WTR began as a journal for poets in California and Nevada and now has expanded to include international poets, writers, and visual artists. Why West Trestle? The journal is based in Auburn, California, where visitors, residents, and travelers driving along Highway 80 pass under a great train trestle as they're entering old town. We think of that trestle as a gateway to the foothills. So for us, West Trestle exemplifies the idea of literature as gateway, as welcome, as bridge, and as home. West Trestle's mission is to promote the work of underrepresented poets, writers, and artists. We are particularly proud of our Cross Ties section, in which our contributors are invited to promote the work of their favorite writers, poets, and artists. We welcome you along for the journey.
