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!

Waxing & Waning is a literary journal that seeks what’s on the fringe. Whatever is deep and true. The moon represents this idea: what is dark, what is brooding, what is wild. We want to feed the beast in you, the one buried beneath layers of manners and anxiety and Banana Republic. Work submitted to Waxing & Waning should be honest and well executed. It should scream coherently; it should drag something out of us that we haven’t seen before; it should rip out our black hearts and show them to us. Bring us the work everyone else (including you) is afraid of.

Proper manuscript format will get you bonus points. If your fiction/creative nonfiction is longer than 5,000 words, it must merit the space it will take. For poetry, we're already a little skeptical about your Howl-long epic.

Badlands is aesthetically open, publishing work from a broad spectrum of genres and styles. Although we publish work of all kinds, we have an abiding interest in the following kinds of writing:

  • Poetry and prose in Spanish, and in translation from Spanish or any other Language,
  • Literature of Place, including, but not limited to, imigrant and indigenous voices,
  • Work exploring settings, narratives, lyric utterances, etc., that can be construed as a kind of Badlands--broadly understood,
  • Work invested in the wild.

We are always searching for the next cover, and for (mostly) Black and White artwork and photography for the interior.
