About

The Raintown Review is one of the longest running print journals with a preference for formal/metrical poetry. Established in 1997 by Harvey Stanbrough, it began as a desktop-published chapbook style journal and has evolved into the perfect bound 100+ page journal of today. Other former editors include Patrick Kanouse and T.S. Kerrigan.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
