Publisher’s description: Rockvale Review was founded in 2017 and publishes work from new, emerging, and established writers. We feature image-driven poems that fit our tagline, Bold and Vulnerable Poetry, which means poems that are hard-edged and finely crafted, but can reach beyond the skin to the emotion beneath.
The journal is unique in that every accepted poem is paired with a piece of art created by a Featured Artist. Also, a Featured Musician composes music to respond to several poems in each issue. In this way, Rockvale Review combines the creative arts and produces a journal that speaks beyond words, moving into the visual and auditory layers of the human spirit. The journal is an experience of blended creativity.
Rockvale Review is published online and as an optional print magazine. Six editors from across the country welcome all voices, all styles, all forms of poetry. Every submission is given respect and attention. Issues are released in May and November of each year.
