Editorial Focus

The American Aesthetic is a quarterly journal searching for poetry that conveys in its composition—as well as in the sound, cadence, and possibly even musicality of its words—an expression of honesty and purpose that somehow rings true.

Tips From the Editor

The American Aesthetic is searching for poetry that will once again engage the general public’s interest; poetry that will seem more meaningful and relevant to their everyday lives—much as a good song, a good play, a good movie, a good book, a good lecture, or even a good sermon might seem meaningful and relevant to their lives. Therefore, we have attempted to create a forum, platform, nexus to bring a certain caliber of poets together in one place. NEW QUARTERLY SONNET PRIZE.
