VTSU eliminates 'Green Mountains Review' after 35 years in ongoing cost-cutting plan
Vermont is about to lose its only literary magazine published at a public university.
For more than 35 years, the Green Mountains Review has published poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction and other written pieces.
But now, Vermont State University is eliminating the magazine to cut costs amid low enrollment and long-term budget problems.
Elizabeth Powell is a creative writing professor at the university, and editor of the literary magazine.
“We have a lot of first generation college students. And our students benefited from Green Mountains Review because it brought a seriousness and showed students that they were valuable and that their voices counted and that they could join the conversation," Powell says.
Powell says a final issue will be published in the spring.
