“Listen—I know nothing of America. / I am told missionaries brought the / potato. I am taught about varieties of wheat.”
Every 15th of the month: new deadlines, new contests, and new opportunities for your voice to find the world. The next six weeks include: Frontier Poetry, Tinderbox, Copper Nickel, Cave Canem, Black Warrior Review and Jabberwock.

Time to turn up the heat on this chilly February with some Poetry We Admire on the theme of Eros— a specially selected curation of recently published poems full of sensuality, desire, and an exploration of erotic love.
We are so grateful to all of our partner-poets for sharing their work with us—please enjoy their beautiful words in our Featured Poetry catalogue.
“In April we will find her body. / It is March. New York is gray, in between / seasons like a heart undecided / between new love and loss.”
