I've spent most of the day looking at online literary journals. In particular, I'm looking at what gets published under the heading of poetry. Whenever I do that, I often come away discouraged about the lack of poetry in the poems that actually get published. Today was no exception. I did, though, find a couple of journals I would recommend. One is Boxcar Poetry Review, which has just published it's 20th issue. The other is Blackbird. I'd recommend spending a little time with each of them. And if you do, come back and let me know what you think.


  1. I like your music selections. Just wanted you to know that.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  2. Thank you for the links...

    I would like to start submitting some of my poetry but I find myself remarkably intimidated...not sure if I'm worthy.

    Peace - Rene

  3. "Ecperts" are killing poetry,medicine,etc.

    We're being "technicality -ed" to death.....
    Keep up YOUR true poety, G-pa.
