Editorial Focus

Each issue of The Ledge is perfect-bound with a full-color cover and features a wide and eclectic range of works by poets and writers of all backgrounds and persuasions. We firmly believe that superior work appeals to a wider audience than most literary journals endeavor to reach, and consider The Ledge Poetry & Fiction Magazine a truly democratic publication in that regard. The Ledge also sponsors annual poetry and fiction awards competitions and an annual poetry chapbook competition.

Tips From the Editor

Founded in 1988 by its editor-in-chief and publisher Timothy Monaghan, The Ledge seeks compelling stories that employ dramatic tension and complex characterization. We especially enjoy poignant stories with a sense of purpose and dislike careless or contrived writing. We seek passionate poems that utilize language and imagery in a fresh, original fashion and favor visceral poems that speak to the human experience. We appreciate inspired, imaginative, well-crafted verse, and we are open to all styles and schools of writing, including formal poems.
