Okno Magazine (Russian: Журнал "Окно"). One of the Russia's leading literary magazines, it was founded in 1923 in Paris by Mikhail Zetlin, the Russian émigré writer. Three paper-based issues were published in 1923 and in 1924. In 2007 Okno was re-established as a web-only magazine of poetry in Russian. It publishes Russian poetry, including prose poems and visual texts, translations of poetry from other languages into Russian, as well as literary heritage and essays/articles on poetry. Since autumn 2010 Okno has also been publishing fiction, e.g. novellas, short stories and fragments of novels. The magazine is currently edited by Anatoly Kudryavitsky, a distant relative of Mikhail Zetlin, and has some well-established poets, e.g. Konstantin Kedrov, Sergey Biryukov and Elena Katsuba, on the editorial board. Dmitri Bavilsky, the prominent Russian novelist and critic, joined the editorial team as the fiction editor in summer 2010.
