Sho Poetry Journal is a small-press Arizona-based print journal coming out of a 20-year hibernation. We publish a diverse range of contemporary poetry and seek to give voice to poets who have been historically underrepresented or overlooked. We champion poets at all stages of their careers.
Tips From the Editor
Our tastes are eclectic, but we read primarily for clarity, energy, and resonance, with a focus on voice and image.
