The American Journal of Poetry is an online review devoted exclusively to poetry and the occasional essay. A strong voice and risk-taking is highly prized. Each issue will feature the work of a myriad of poets from beginning artists to many of the world’s most acclaimed. There are no restrictions with regard to style, subject matter or length. In a world where the “long poem” has been eschewed by many literary reviews, The American Journal of Poetry is keen on printing them on a regular basis. We are a family-operated literary endeavor. Our hallmark is “Strong Rx Medicine” ®. Nothing pleases the review more than introducing a poet’s very first published work. We will feature the poetry of between 125 and 175 poets per issue. International submissions are very welcome
