Poet Lore is a biannual print journal of poetry, essays, and reviews, published with the conviction that poetry provides a record of human experience as valuable as history. Book-length issues deliver news from the interior—poems that make concerns of our moment both urgent and intimate.


One Year subscription (2 issues) for $20.

Single Issue for $12. Purchase single issues here.


Poet Lore has set the standard for poetry magazines in this country since 1889. There is none better. It is an honor to have appeared in its pages.
—Pablo Medina, poet, translator, and Rockefeller and National Endowment for the Arts fellow
