Founded in 1979 by Maria Mazziotti Gillan, the Paterson Literary Review began as a mimeographed publication and, in the more than three decades since, it has become one of the most well-respected resources for poetry in the country. 

The journal has published many poets, including Allen Ginsberg, William Stafford, Ruth Stone, Sonia Sanchez, Laura Boss, Marge Piercy, David Ray, and Diane di Prima.
