Editor David Svenson says that within the pages of The New Poet, a new online magazine, readers will find "strong, vivid poems that utilize imagistic and narrative styles."
"As a poet," says Svenson, "I read to not only discover new work and trends, but also for inspiration. I started The New Poet to witness exciting developments in poetry firsthand and to share these discoveries with others. I also understand the value of encouraging others to keep writing. With three issues a year and a mission to find new and exciting work, The New Poet also serves as inspiration to other writers to push their own limits."
The first issue features poetry from Wendy Carlisle, Paul Hostovsky, Allie Marini Batts, Andrea Potos, Lana Rakhman, Alexis Sellas, Tim Suermondt, Tim Tomlinson, Theresa Williams, and Axel Wright. And the second issue features Kate Bernadette Benedict, Thomas J. Erickson, Caitlin McLean, Jesse Millner, Sue Morgan, John Palen, Ned Randle, Colin Sargent, Martin Willitts Jr., and Laura Madeline Wiseman.
Currently, The New Poet publishes only poetry--of all kinds--but hopes to include book reviews and interviews in the future. Submissions for issue 3 are currently being accepted through Submittable.
