Only Poems 44

See other projects related to this listing.


Only Poems is run by two poets. There are so many ways to delight in poetry. We are a bit obsessive — when we like a poem, we immediately want to see more of the poet’s work. Most literary magazines we love follow a poem-a-day model, focusing on the singular poetic spark. We want to create a space to invite poets to lay before us a small galaxy — show us the milky way and blackholes and supernovas and the many moons and the catastrophic solar flares of their work. We are committed to fostering a platform that showcases intellectual exploration, artistic innovation, and sociocultural inclusivity. We seek to support emerging poets by publishing them in the same space as established poets. We believe all poets should be paid for their work.
