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!

We seek to publish - in paper and ink - the best writing. We take our ethic and aesthetic from the Canon Law of the Roman Catholic Church. Not all of it; just Canon 1115, which closes with the provoking observation that "Foundlings are presumed to be legitimate until the contrary is proved." 

We also take direction from Coco Chanel, who observed that “style is all that endures.”

Foundlings Press is a highly selective publisher of full-length works of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and certain other uncategorizable material. Under our imprint The Public Books we publish full-length nonfiction works of historical, political, cultural, economic, and often local interest. The Press also produces a biannual print poetry magazine. We will accept unsolicited submissions during two four-week periods each year.  Foundlings hosts an annual artist residency and poetry chapbook publication contest, which pairs a winning poet with a pre-selected guest book artist. We accept submissions year-round at foundlingszine@gmail.com. Much of our list is solicited, and it can take us quite a long time to respond to full-length submissions.

Each issue of COG is a curiously constructed curation offered up by the students of Cogswell College. COG's writers thrill with skillfully wrought and cohesive narratives; insight and intensity; imagery and attitude - alternating nimbly between closely examined moments, characters or nuances and larger human themes. COG is not a venue for student work; rather, as of March 2018, COG had received submissions from writers working in 24 countries beyond the U.S.

In addition to publishing traditional text-based work, check out Cogitate - our audio broadcast - and the video series. We consider submissions in both categories, as well as cover art submissions.

Thurston Howl Publications is a small progressive publishing house in Lansing, Michigan. We have specialized in animal fiction and evocative literature.

The best way to appeal to any of our editors is to move them in a certain way. Your horror should terrify; your fantasy amaze; your erotica arouse; your political lit intrigue.

Representative Authors: 

Some of our namesake authors include Alan Gordon, David Clement-Davies, Catherynne Valente, Kyell Gold, and Fred Patten.
