"In 2004, at the urging of a group of ambitious graduate students, the UT Austin English Department created Bat City Review as a corollary to the M.A. program in Creative Writing. A first-class Master’s program, the Department reasoned, deserved to have a first-class literary journal. Published in spring 2005, the inaugural issue featured a diverse range of short fiction and poetry. Since then, Bat City Review has aroused attention and excitement on the small-press literary magazine scene and has earned a reputation as one of the most consistently rich literary magazines published today."
