The American Aesthetic

The American Aesthetic is searching for poetry that will once again engage the general public’s interest; poetry that will seem more meaningful and relevant to their everyday lives—much as a good song, a good play, a good movie, a good book, or a good lecture or sermon might seem meaningful and relevant to their lives. Therefore, we have attempted to create a forum, platform, nexus to bring a certain caliber of poets together in one place.

The Ampersand Review

We are looking for creative work, but only good creative work. Give us God, give us god, give us man, give us people & make us laugh. If you can make us cry, do so, if you want to lament loss of pets & family, do not. We enjoy smiling & the bizarre sensation of the rabble-rouse. We want to feel, & we want to want, & we don't want Cheap Trick jokes inserted here, unless they are awesome. We are strict & unbiased; we value aesthetic above morality; we want to read a good piece as much as our readers, so write one before submitting.

Anima is a journal for contemporary poems which dare to look beyond the materialist paradigm of mainstream western culture. We offer the reader thoughtful and intelligent writing which, in one way or another, avoids taking for granted the primacy of the everyday world of senses and reason.
