"Crazyhorse's mission is to publish the entire spectrum of today’s fiction, essays, and poetry—from the mainstream to the avant-garde, from the established to the undiscovered writer.

Crazyhorse was founded in 1960 by the poet Tom McGrath. Since that time, it has published esteemed writers such as John Updike, Raymond Carver, Jorie Graham, John Ashbery, Robert Bly, Ha Jin, W. P. Kinsella, Richard Wilbur, James Wright, Carolyn Forché, Charles Simic, Charles Wright, Billy Collins, Galway Kinnell, James Tate, and Franz Wright. In our pages, you’ll find some of the finest writing being published today: Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winners, Guggenheim fellows, NEA fellowship recipients, and authors with awards from the O. Henry Prize, Pushcart Prize, and Best American anthologies."
