We are looking for new and exciting poems about life, landscape, travel and pilgrimage, though all contributions will be considered. Quality, not subject, is our ultimate benchmark. Poems should be original and well-crafted, and have something resonant to say. Whether the poem is rhymed or unrhymed, direct or oblique, it's the quality of the writing that counts, and the mysterious, visceral frisson you get from reading it.

Plume

A provisional indication of our tastes – “what we are looking for” — may be inferred from the quoted passages (which will change often):  a sense of the uncanny, foremost, and of the fineness of language, the huge absences to which it points and partakes of, and the urgency and permanence of its state of departure — the coattails forever –just now—disappearing around the corner.

the prompt

As writers and instructors of writing, we have all found ourselves with work that came from workshops, random exercises, and desperate attempts to find our voices. Unfortunately, anything that looks too much like it came from an exercise, prompt, or other such “mechanical” source gets relegated by editors to that pile with a sticky note on top that says “too workshoppy.” That is why we created the prompt. The prompt is the place for all levels of writers to have an opportunity to publish, as well as for a community of writers to find new ways to expand creative writing horizons.

Songs of Eretz Poetry Review


We offer two opportunities for publication: the (nearly) daily Review, and an annual Contest. Our mission is to attract, promote, and publish the good poetry of good poets. We will consider unpublished and previously published poetry of any genre and length. Songs of Eretz is unique in that we feature the poet as much as the poetry. Each poem is thoughtfully paired with a graphic and accompanied by the poet's bio, the poet's notes, and an editor's note. In addition, all submissions receive personal responses from the editor--a courtesy that is almost unheard of these days.

Squalorly

We do not seek scholarly analyses or angst-driven diary entries; nor do we wish to be entertained by martians, demons, ghosts, or fairy godmothers. Those stories have a place, but it’s not here. Move, amaze, horrify and educate us about the complex world in which we live. We publish storytellers. Whether they hold MFAs or are ditch diggers is of little concern, so long as the words seem to have clawed their way onto the page, defying the will of the author, with little regard for sleep, safety or comfort.

Stonecoast Review

This is the nature of writers: We write, we edit, we are declined. We write some more, we edit more, then maybe, we are accepted. This is the process that in part defines who we are—the ability to never cease. These traits are found within The Stonecoast Review, edited by the students in the Stonecoast MFA Program in Creative Writing, consistently ranked among the nation’s top 10 low res programs by Poets & Writers Magazine. We feature powerful, undiscovered voices next to widely-published and esteemed authors in their own genres. This is our enduring voice for creativity and art.
