Editorial Focus

Since 1950, the BPJ has been publishing poetry that matters. We are open to a wide range of forms and styles in contemporary poetry. We are always watching for new poets, quickened language, and poems with a fresh purchase on the political or social landscape.

Tips From the Editor

The senior editors read every poem that comes in over the transom. We read year-round, do not charge reading fees of any kind, and are conscientious about responding to manuscripts promptly. In return, we ask that you honor our guidelines, including our policy of not considering simultaneous submissions.
