Editorial Focus

Free Verse is a bi-annual electronic journal that focuses on publishing the finest free verse being written today. Free Verse is looking for eclectic, sophisticated, accomplished poetry possessed by a sense of poetic intelligence and power. Free Verse is especially interested in non-narrative lyrics--but we will also consider narrative poems. Translations are welcome.

Tips From the Editor

Please do send work that has vision and makes use of bold and exacting language. Please do not send work that dully reprises happy or sad moments.
