Beechwood Review 60

About

Beechwood Review publishes minimalist writing and art. We’re partial to themes of time, nature, humanity, philosophy, chaos, reason, the ridiculous, and the whimsical. We don’t like work that drones on about fancy table fruit. Although good fruit poems have their place.

Voluntary Fees: This project accepts voluntary fees for "tip jar" submissions.

Poetry Open

We’d love to see some visual poetry submissions and one word poems that meld language and aesthetics. Heck give us: codes, poems in translation of languages that you made up, poems in translation of real languages, hand written poems, photo-stitched poems, found poems, and anything else you could barely qualify as a poem. We’ll take it if it’s a tiny powerful rift. We’ll consider: experimental verse, haiku, senryu, tanka, renku, free verse, sonnets, acrostics, one word “poetry” aka poemwords, and more. We appreciate formal technique, but the words must have meaning over anything else. Our favorite poets include: ee cummings, Jack Kerouac, Wallace Stevens, William Blake, Robert Frost, Pablo Neruda.

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. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • 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.
