Today, The Yale Review launched a new website: TYR. The website, designed by Pentagram, integrates the print publication with exclusive online-only content, including essays, columns, poetry, fiction, multimedia content, and more. The launch of the site allows all of the magazine’s print pieces to be accessible to the public, along with highlights from the archive.
In her editor’s note, Meghan O’Rourke writes, “We wanted a site where you could feel that a treasure of great writing was just an easy click away, a place free from pop-ups, information overload, and sensationalism.”
TYR launches with pieces from the Spring 2021 issue, which includes poetry from Terrance Hayes, Solmaz Sharif, Ocean Vuong, Elisa Gonzalez, and more. There’s also an essay by Becca Rothfeld about online stalking, an essay by Jean Garnett about twinship and envy, and a collaboration from Leanne Shapton and Sheila Heti on the inner lives of comets. A new series, “Poem of the Week,” also makes its debut with a poem by Kaveh Akbar.
The Yale Review will continue to publish as a journal and remains committed to its print edition as well as its new online edition.
