Tips From the Editor
Founded in 1988 by its editor-in-chief and publisher Timothy Monaghan, The Ledge seeks compelling stories that employ dramatic tension and complex characterization. We especially enjoy poignant stories with a sense of purpose and dislike careless or contrived writing. We seek passionate poems that utilize language and imagery in a fresh, original fashion and favor visceral poems that speak to the human experience. We appreciate inspired, imaginative, well-crafted verse, and we are open to all styles and schools of writing, including formal poems.
