Publisher’s description: American Poetry Journal is committed to publishing work from diverse background and orientations, from new and established voices. Recent contributors include Dorianne Laux, Wendy Xu, Jeffrey Levine, Faylita Hicks, Chelsea Dingman, Jill Alexander Essbaum, Kelli Russell Agodon, and many others. We feature work that is committed, distinct, and moving.
We publish a print edition and an anthology each year alongside two online editions. We also publish stellarly designed chapbooks with our chapbook series which was launched in 2019 to recognize new and important work making its way into full length books.
The journal was established by Editor Emeritus J.P. Dancing Bear (2004–2017).
