About

Bengaluru Review is an online magazine dedicated to art and its many expressions. Started as a joint collaboration by Abhivyakti and Atta Galatta, the magazine is run completely on submission basis.

We publish reviews of books, poetry, plays, exhibitions, events, art festivals, films, TV series, and documentaries every month. We also have a section dedicated to bhasha, where reviews written in Indian vernacular languages are encouraged. Besides reviews, we also publish works of original fiction and poetry, translations, in-depth essays, interviews, and photo stories, and run our own podcast channel.

Bengaluru Review also conducts workshops every month, details of which can be found on our Facebook Page.
