The American Poetry Journal:
The APJ seeks to publish work using poetic device, favoring image,
metaphor and good sound. We like alliteration,
extended metaphors, image, movement and poems that can pass the so what" test. The
APJ has in mind the reader who delights in discovering what a poem can do to the
tongue and what the poem paints on the cave of the mind.
The APJ wants to provide the poems published within its pages the best possible
focus and seeks to further promote them through reviewers and literary websites as well as
by nominating works to the Pushcart Prize. The APJ also offers the American
Poet Prize and the APJ Book Prize.
