Publisher’s description: For over thirty years, the Hampden-Sydney Poetry Review has been publishing the work of both emerging poets and the nation’s (and the world’s) best known poets. From our quiet corner of rural southside Virginia, we’ve, in recent years, printed work from John Burnside, Maurice Manning, Lisa Jarnot, Eleanor Wilner, John Kinsella, Lavinia Greenlaw, Stephanie Dunn, and many others. We also have a long tradition of publishing poetry in translation – publishing, among others, poems by Jaroslav Seifert (for the first time in the US), Miklos Radnoti, Yves Bonnefoy, and Vicente Huidobro in past and recent issues

The review is published at Hampden-Sydney College, located in Hampden-Sydney, Virginia and was founded here in the early 1970s by poets Tom O’Grady and Michael Egan. The magazine is published once a year and invites submissions of poetry and poetry in translation. Please see our website for more information and guidelines.
