  • About this Magazine:

    One reader described us this way: “I found it terrifically gratifying: all the poems sassy, demotic, smart, gritty, crackling with energy. I thought: I want to be with them.” We take editorial direction from Emily Dickinson, “If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that it is poetry.”

Publisher’s description: Hole In The Head Review was founded in 2020 on the perilous coast of Maine—the very edge of the Atlantic, where the sun rises on the United States and darkness falls first. If you don't like the weather, as native Mainers say, just wait.

We are enthusiastic about publishing both new and established poets like Richard Blanco, Larkin Warren, David Weiss, Marie Harris, Mimi White, Marilyn A. Johnson, Michael Hettich, and Ken Rosen—and artists/photographers like Charter Weeks, Richard Heckler, Rose Goetz, Jere DeWaters, Jan Pieter van Voorst van Beest, Paul Brahms, and Garrett Speirs.

Our editors listen for a strong voice and look for clarity of vision. We find that an online journal provides a flexible and visually stunning canvas. Our readers are scattered throughout the world.

Hole in The Head Review is published four times a year—Groundhog Day, May Day, the editor's birthday in August, and the day after Halloween.

You need another literary journal like you need a hole in the head. We're here for you.
