U.S. 1 Worksheets is the annual publication of U.S. 1 Poets’ Cooperative, a group of poets based in central New Jersey. In addition to producing the journal, members promote poetry by meeting weekly to share and critique their own work, producing an annual literary journal, give public readings followed by open mic, and hold occasional events, including U.S. 1 Presents at Princeton Public Library.
The journal, which began in tabloid format in 1973, has been published continuously since then. While publishing the work of their cooperative members, the current issue includes about 2/3 of its works from poets throughout the U.S., as well as from England and the Philippines. Manuscripts are accepted from May 1st through June 30th and read by rotating editors from the Cooperative.
