The Poetry Porch is a magazine on the Internet for poets, teachers, and their students. First appearing online in 1997, it is only published on the Internet (so far). We are interested in original unpublished poems, essays, reviews, memoirs, and fiction, although we might republish work as a special posting for a featured poet. Besides an annual issue, often devoted to a theme, the site also updates on a regular basis the Sonnet Scroll, an unfurling electronic scroll of unpublished traditional and hybrid sonnets.
Join our mailing list via email or US mail to keep in touch about new issues, themes, and deadlines. Submissions are read in the winter months and are usually received as a response to an outgoing call for papers. Query before submitting criticism and prose.
