Editorial Focus

Poems that make us want to throw your book across the room because it’s so damn good. Poems we like are often obsessed with myth, foreign languages, and our fathers. Bring orange groves to NYC, the epistolary language of turn-of-the-century Paris to an email exchange, or a fight with your boyfriend to pre-Roman Gaul. Poems that import and export imagery, but handle it carefully. Poems that take linguistic and personal risks feel more important to us.

Tips From the Editor

Please note: Poems that take linguistic and personal risks feel more important to us. The ground covered by a poem willing to say, literally, anything in order to relay the poet’s unique experience provide more, in our opinion, than poems that employ safe conventions and are only willing to exist within a accepted set of social morays. Fearlessness, in other words, or fearlessness imbued with sincere vulnerability, interests us deeply. See our published books for more.
