Editorial Focus

The American Journal of Poetry publishes superlative poetry. No restrictions as to length, form or subject matter. Long poems are especially welcomed, as well as essays on poetry, visual poetry, experimental, etc. We publish all poets, from the world's most renowned—to beginners and all in-between. It is the review's greatest pleasure to introduce a poet's first publication ever. We are a writer friendly journal. Replies are always given within 15 business days. All submissions read by senior editors—no readers or screeners.

Tips From the Editor

Be bold and uncensored. A distinctive voice is prized. Read 90% of the time, write 10% of the time. We are a review which is international in scope; fully 25% of our submissions are from foreign countries.
