Publisher's description:The Aurorean has been feature-profiled in Poet’s Market and review-recommended by NewPages (“The Aurorean is a powerhouse of poetry”). Subject matter/style open; mostly free verse. Focuses: New England; the seasons; haiku; uplifting poetry (not religious or denominational). We routinely publish the biggest names in the small press but are just as pleased to showcase newer poets.
Since 1995, the Aurorean has published over 1,500 poets from around the world while being firmly rooted in its New England heritage. We strive to live up to our name, the adjective form of aurora—aurorean—luminescent, like the dawn. We have distinguished ourselves by our reputation of: uninterrupted and timely publication; acknowledging each submission as it arrives; and sending a galley proof for every poem that appears on our pages. 61 pages of poetry (approximately 90 poets, 2 featured); “Best Poem” from last issue receives $30. Contests: Poetic Quote of the Season; Editor’s Chapbook Choice; Outstanding Haiku (students in Creative Writing programs). Guidelines: http://encirclepub.com/aurorean/submission-guidelines/.
