Since its conception, TRANSOM has included poems alongside poet interviews that dig deeper into an examination of poetry as it lives, in the world between poets and readers. TRANSOM is a poetry journal that continues in that tradition, inviting not only poetry but lived and living experience.

TRANSOM is expansive. We encourage a wide definition of poetry.
