Poets Reading the News is a digital platform that publishes original poetry about current events. We believe in the power of poetry to transform the world and how we see each other. We call it journalism in verse.
We are, at heart, a newspaper – the revelation being that our copy is pure verse, produced by a diverse staff of poet-journalists from around the world, spanning disciplines, views, and geographies. What it comes down to is gripping writing about the world around us and in us.
Poets Reading the News publishes unsolicited and original poetry and prose about current events. Whenever possible, include links to news stories regarding the topic of your work. If you are integrating quotes or data into your writing, you must provide links to your sources.
We encourage writers of all backgrounds to submit their writing, especially poets of color, women poets, LGBTQI+ poets, and poets from countries and regions near and far.
To get more information and submit your writing, please visit our website. Thank you for your interest. We look forward to reading your poetry!

In Layman's Terms publishes poetry, creative nonfiction, and interviews from around the world with the intention of bridging the gap between academia and the average person, or even the gap between different branches of academia itself. It is meant to inspire a curiosity for learning about science, the natural world, and technology.
Please pay attention to the submission guidelines and the current theme. We suggest reading past issues to get a feel for what we're going for, but also because we think there are some pretty neat pieces of writing and art, and our contributors deserve some attention.
Ekphrastic writing. All of the poetry and prose we publish in inspired by visual art.
Read the journal! We love diverse styles of quality writing from all over the world, but if your work doesn't respond to works of visual art, we can't use it.
If you are someone who loves visual art and loves writing about visual art, we'd love to hear from you.
Surprise us. We want nothing less than to expand and redefine exkphrasis by stretching the concept to its limits. Show us artworks we've never seen, or show us our familiar favourites from a whole new perspective.
We want work that is urgent and beautiful, that was written with lightning and a sense that tomorrow may never come. We want work that pushes edges and tells us something new. We love work that is personal and political—political in the largest sense, as in awareness of who has the power and how it is they came to have it. We publish interviews and book reviews and review-essays.
