Our journal is soley interested in poetry in received forms (e.g. sonnets, triolets, terza rima, pantoums, sestinas, prose poems) and nonce forms (those invented for the poem). We publish original texts, translations, reviews, and essays. We view this venture not as a partisan-like imposition of a particular aesthetic, but as establishing something akin to the radio station that
"listeners" will turn to when they are in the mood to "hear" top-notch poetry written in meter and traditional or nonce forms.
Tips From the Editor
Please read through some issues to gauge our particular slants on "formal" poetry. Please be sure you know the difference between blank verse and free verse, and don't send us the latter unless there is some clear governing pattern. Please read our guidelines carefully. Submissions through Submittable only.
