About

Plainsongs’s title suggests not only its location on the Great Plains, but also its preference for the living language, whether in free or formal verse. Plainsongs presents poems that seem to be aware of modernist and post-modernist influences, not necessarily by imitation or allusion, but by using the tools provided by that rich heritage. Featuring poetry that runs the gamut from traditional to experimental, from realist to surrealist, Plainsongs strives to capture the multiplicity of voices--including those of feminist, nonwhite, immigrant, and LGBTQ writers--that make up this vibrant and wonderfully diverse Midwestern soundscape. Poets from all 50 states and many foreign countries contribute regularly to Plainsongs.
