The Raintown Review
Dear Poets and Friends,
I'm pleased to announce the rebirth of a prestigious poetry journal. The Raintown Review will not only survive, but will thrive as a perfect-bound journal, albeit tri-annually rather than quarterly. We will publish our new first issue once we've received enough quality submissions. I ask that you consider submitting your work to us and/or pass along this email to your poet friends and acquaintances. Complete guidelines for submission are below.
About The Raintown Review
Our primary criterion is attention to craft. We have published the works of William Baer, Jared Carter, Annie Finch, Richard Moore, Simon Perchik, Jennifer Reeser, Len Roberts, Dorothy Stone, Frederick Zydek, and many more.
We are especially interested in well-rendered blank verse, well-turned sonnets of every variety, villanelles, and triolets. We will also publish literary criticism and interviews with contemporary American poets.
We are not interested in rondeaus or other forms in which the same lines repeat in a different sequence in each stanza throughout the poem; haiku, senryu, or other strictly syllabic forms; or those poems that take the shape of the topic of the poem, such as a poem about a soft drink taking the shape of a soft-drink bottle. Finally, you should know that a "prose poem" is one in which the meter has not been intentionally manipulated -- what is commonly called "free verse." We have no problem with well-crafted prose poetry (free verse), but will not consider the block paragraph vignettes that have been passing for prose poems during the past several years. In poetry, the line breaks make a difference; a paragraph, whether it appears in an essay, an article, a novel, or a so-called prose poem, is still just a paragraph.
We much prefer electronic submissions.
Please query the editor via email at email@example.com regarding submission of literary criticism or interviews.
Submit no more than three poems in the body of an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with TRR in the subject line, or
Submit no more than three poems via snail mail to TRR, 6179 N CR 375 E, Pittsboro IN 46167. (Snail-mail submissions not accompanied by an SASE or email address for notification of acceptance or rejection will be neither considered nor acknowledged.)
I will personally respond to each submission, but please allow up to one month for a response.
Payment is one copy of the issue in which your work appears. (Subscribers will receive an additional copy.)
Note: The subscription address is not the same as the submission address.
The Raintown Review is published tri-annually. The exact publication schedule will be announced at a later date. A one-year subscription (three issues) is $27; a two-year subscription is $50; a three-year subscription is $69. To subscribe, send a check or money order to
Central Ave Press
2132A Central SE #144
Albuquerque NM 87106
We will, of course, honor all current subscriptions.
Thanks in advance for trusting us with your work and for passing along this information.
