Hartskill Review seeks essays on contemporary poetry and poetics. “Contemporary” is broadly conceived as anything after 1950. For essays about a poet or group of poets, a slight preference is given to American poets.
The primary purpose of Hartskill Review is to publish contemporary poetry. Essays, therefore, are meant for a general literary audience. Ideas should be sharp, challenging, and meaningful, but not plagued by jargon or willful obscurity. Submissions are reviewed and selected by the editor and are not peer reviewed externally.
The submission deadline for the next issue is June 27, 2014.
Topics may include:
Poetry of fragmentation
The effects of conceptual discontinuity
The modes of poetic speaking
The function of metaphor
Poetry and theory
Poetry and value
Poetry and phantasy
Poetry and ideology
Any other engaging topic relevant to contemporary poetry
Submissions should meet the following criteria:
· Roughly 1,000-3,000 words
· Microsoft Word file
· MLA format
Questions may be addressed to Joshua Hjalmer Lind at firstname.lastname@example.org.
