The Yale Literary Magazine, founded in 1836, is the oldest literary magazine in the United States[1] and publishes poetry and fiction by Yale undergraduates twice per academic year.

The magazine is published biannually. In recent years, it has conducted and published interviews with high-profile twentieth and twenty-first-century literary figures such as Junot Diaz, who won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, Art Spiegelman, who won a Pulitzer Prize for his graphic novel memoir Maus, and Paul Muldoon, the poetry editor for The New Yorker, who won a Pulitzer Prize for Poetry.
