Aesthetix is a new online poetry publication with a unique approach: poets are required to write a poem using one specific title per issue. According to the editor, “This results in a really interesting variety of approaches to a subject (‘aesthetix’) juxtaposed in ways that are not common in the average poetry journal.”
The first issue, “Red Car in the Future,” includes works by Seth Landman, Wendy Xu, Sean Williams, Rob MacDonald, Adam Clay, Ed Haworth Hoeppner, Matt Anserello, Parker Tettleton, Nick Lantz, B. Medrev, John Gallaher, Nick Sturm, Matthew Henriksen, Kimiko Hahn, JoAnna Novak, and Elisabeth Workman.
Aesthetix will post one featured title quarterly for submission consideration. Submissions accepted from new and established writers, with a particular interest in publishing long poems, collaborative poems, poems with nontext elements, poems by children, and poems by non-poets.
