Sugar House Review is a publication of both range and quality, one that will appeal to experienced readers and writers, as well those readers who are just coming to poetry.


Sugar House Review is a magazine of breadth—eclectic swatches of style, tone, subject, and form. It is representative of the varied voices that comprise contemporary poetry. 


Sugar House Review has a prevalent and available presence in the Salt Lake City and Cedar City areas. This includes organizing or helping to organize poetry events, availability in local book stores, and a presence at literary functions.


Sugar House Review works hard to have an inspiring, singular, and generous presence in our community, region, and the poetry contingent at large.

"It looks good. It
reads good."

—William Kloefkorn
Former Nebraska Poet Laureate


 “The editors of Sugar House Review take to heart the proverb that if a job is worth doing, it's worth doing well . . . A very fine poetry magazine that would make an excellent addition to any collection of contemporary American poetry.”



"Natalie Young is a peach to work with."


—Sandra Marchetti
