At Length has been publishing long-form writing—poetry, fiction, essays, & more—for over 20 years. Under its founding editors, Jonathan Farmer and Dan Kois, the journal appeared as a print quarterly, focusing on poems and stories. In 2009, Farmer expanded At Length’s offerings to include art, photography, and music; he also moved the journal online. In 2023, Derek Mong and Anne O. Fisher took the reins from Farmer, redesigning At Length’s website and branching out into literary translation.

Throughout its existence, At Length has offered a venue for in-depth writing that’s open to possibilities that shorter forms preclude. We publish long poems (and poetic sequences), novellas, narrative non-fiction, literary criticism, and translations from all of the above. Our authors have won Pulitzers, Guggenheims, Whiting Awards, and National Book Awards. Other publications have taken note. At Length has been written up in the New Yorker, the Times Literary Supplement, Poets & Writers, NPR, and the Wall Street Journal, while work from the site has appeared in Best American Poetry, the Best Music Writing, and received Best of the Net awards.

At Length strives to publish new work a few times each month. We also maintain a searchable archive of the journal’s history, which we encourage you to explore. There you’ll find work by Terrance Hayes, Daisy Fried, Belle Boggs, Kimiko Hahn, Major Jackson, Shane McCrae, Paisley Rekdal, and many others.
