The Gentian Journal 6

About

The Gentian (pronounced jen-shun) is a journal that publishes exciting new poetry and photography from emerging and established poets. We believe, as Caroline Bird says, that “Failure isn’t the risk, but the point: each poem falls short so we write another.” We want work that throws itself out into the blue, that is ambitious, that does away with the every-day and old fashioned (or at least shows us it in a new light). We believe in poetry that is lyrical, strange and alive. The journal is run and operated by Durham University Poetry Society. Each of our editors stays on as a reader to help the next and pass on their expertise. The Gentian is a project born out of a desire to share what we know, mentor new poets/editors and showcase new work. We believe our sense of community as well as our commitment to great poetry is what makes The Gentian special.
