MockingHeart Review is an online literary journal. Founded as a poetry magazine in 2015 by Louisiana poet Clare L. Martin, MHR is now under the editorship of poet and critic Tyler Robert Sheldon. The aesthetic is ever expanding, and since 2019, the journal features fine poetry and artwork alike.
Tips From the Editor
We favor poems that express the complexities of the human heart in clear, precise, and lyrical language. We hope for visionary works that are visceral and that will leave us emotionally undone. We encourage poems that speak to the personal and political inasmuch as the political relates to the person/a.
We accept poetry only. Prose poems are welcome. Works that require extensive special formatting are discouraged, our apologies in advance. Unpublished poems only. Simultaneous submissions okay if the editor is notified immediately of publication elsewhere.
