Letting a few owls out of the bag

What do these poets have in common (other than the fact that their names are all in red)?

Kelli Russell Agodon * Rusty Barnes * Patrick Carrington * William Coughlin * Melissa Culbertson * Adam Deutsch * Jehanne Dubrow * Jeannine Hall Gailey * Jessi Lee Gaylord * Do Gentry * Jessica Greenbaum * Anne Haines * Brandi Homan * Jessica Jewell * Alex Lemon * Rebecca Loudon * Clay Matthews * Corey Mesler * Natasha Kochicheril Moni * Susan Rich * Renee Ruderman * F. Daniel Rzicznek * Peter Jay Shippy * Sarah Sloat * Debbie Yee

They will all be featured in the inaugural issue of Barn Owl Review! Of course, this is only a fraction of the poetic goodness you will find in the magazine this January when it hatches, and we still have hundreds (hundreds!) of poems left to read and discuss and more subs coming in every day.

If you haven't sent us anything yet, don't delay! And oh yeah, we publish fiction too, and we already have a number of reviews on our website. If you're the author of a recent small press collection of poetry, consider sending us a review copy and check out our review philosophy. We will feature reviews on the website and in the print edition.

Congratulations on finding so amny worthwile poems.

Take on May

It's the first day of finals week and I already have that loopy off-my-routine feeling. Waiting for things to grade, and when those ...
