The Bombay Review (TBR) is a bi-monthly online literary magazine publishing short fiction, essays, art and poetry, with annual print anthologies. With a readership base in more than 120 countries, TBR is based out of New York City in US, and Bombay in India.
Apart from publishing, The Bombay Review also conducts free literary events across cities in India and abroad. The first print anthology was released in July, 2015 by Manjiri Prabhu, Director of Pune International Literary Festival, and the team also conducted a reading at PILF 2015, while the second anthology, ‘The International Anthology of Fiction and Poetry: Featuring Writers & Poets from 31 Countries’ was launched in August 2016 at Oxford Bookstore, Mumbai. The third print anthology was themed on South Asia and had its launch in Amsterdam (Available on demand only).
Founded by Kaartikeya when he was 19, the magazine is run by a young team of passionate individuals who work on a voluntarily basis. Editors have given four TEDx Talks, at IIITA Allahabad, SRM Chennai, DPS Bangalore and MahindraÉcoleCentrale Hyderabad. They are also panelists and lecturers across various literary festivals and universities in India like Jaipur Literary Festival, Hyderbad Literary Festival, Siyahi Literary Festival, Kolkata Literary Festival, among others. Over the years the work has brought us more than $30,000 in awards, grants, and scholarship to the editor.
They have in the past done projects in Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, United Kingdom, Japan, Canada, Australia, Ireland, Nigeria, Somalia with upcoming tours to Bulgaria. Upcoming projects include Iraq and an international anthology.
The Bombay Review is also looking for smaller, and younger, literary ventures to sponsor and provide support.
