We’ve come a long way since the first “unofficial” board meeting in 1991. When we started out wanting beautiful poems that lifted the human spirit, we had no idea that running a journal was a full-time occupation.
We are an all volunteer staff dedicated to the advancement of poetry and art. Borderlands has received the highest praise from national and local reviewers.
Borderlands is funded in part by the City of Austin Cultural Funding Program. Founders include Dorothy Barnett, D’Arcy Randall, Liz Garton Scanlon, Hazel Ward, Lynn Gilbert, Pamela Cook and Alice Batt.
