basalt is the recipient of an Oregon Literary Fellowship for publishers. Jeffrey Levine, editor-in-chief at Tupelo Press, served as the judge in publishing and had this to say about basalt:

A journal that pays attention to the overlapping worlds of literary and fine arts is something special, if not entirely unique. But, a journal that enables this marriage with such sensitivity and beauty is rare indeed. basalt is doing gorgeous and exciting work, not only with their print journal but though their website and commendable educational outreach projects. The real gift here is the extraordinary editorial attention to the ways in which the various media might speak to each other within the pages of a magazine.
