Publisher's description: The Courtship of Winds was created in 2000 as an online journal publishing poetry, fiction, nonfiction, art, and music. Publication of the journal was suspended in 2002 and resumed in 2016 with a new web design but the same emphasis on fine writing, art, and engagement with issues of the day.

There is no narrow aesthetic determining the content of The Courtship of Winds. The editors are open to different forms, from traditional to experimental. Work that, through fresh and vivid language, illuminates issues that preoccupy serious people is welcome, as well as lyrical work that dances on the eye or resonates in the mind.

Authors with a long list of published work and those trying to be published for the first time are given the same careful, critical reading. Those interested in submitting work should of course read some issues to get a feel for the editors’ taste.
