Publisher’s description: Under a Warm Green Linden, launched in 2008, is both a biannual digital poetry journal and a forum on the technical and ineffable qualities of the art of poetry. Reviews and interviews with established and emerging poets are intended to deepen, illuminate, and complicate an understanding of their work; and excellent poetry of all subjects and styles by a diversity of authors illustrates our conviction that poetry encourages an engagement with our deepest truths, challenges, fears, and joys. Each issue is accompanied by a selection of broadsides signed by the authors.
We also publish two or more poetry chapbooks a year, chosen from our annual manuscript open-reading period in the winter; submissions of original poetry, reviews, and interviews are read year-round.
The title of the journal alludes to an image from Pier Paolo Pasolini’s "The Day of My Death," chosen for its balancing the terrors of being with the promise of renewal. Note that a portion of all proceeds will be used to support our green mission, to contribute to reforestation efforts in forests damaged by fire and agriculture.
Under a Warm Green Linden is a two-time finalist for the Community of Literary Magazines and Presses' Firecracker Award, and Entropy named Under a Warm Green Linden as one of the best journals of 2017.
