Featuring poetry that runs the gamut from traditional to experimental, from realist to surrealist, Plainsongs strives to capture the multiplicity of voices--including those of feminist, nonwhite, immigrant, and LGBTQ+ writers--that make up the vibrant and wonderfully diverse Midwestern soundscape. Poets from all fifty states and many foreign countries contribute regularly to Plainsongs.
Tips From the Editor
Try to keep poems under 75 lines. Avoid cliches and well-worn expressions/tropes. Edit carefully. Aim for linguistic precision/concision throughout.
