The National Poetry Review is an annual online journal of poetry (previously a print journal published from 2003 to 2015 by our sister press, The National Poetry Review Press).
Distinction, innovation, and linguistic joie de vivre are important to TNPR. We agree with Frost about delight and wisdom. We believe in the value of rich sound and look for poems that stay with the reader long after they’re read. We seek to enchant.
In addition, we seek to increase exposure and respect for our poets. We nominate to the Pushcart Prize (Ted Kooser’s poem from TNPR won a Pushcart Prize!), Best of the Net, and Best New Poets, and work published in TNPR has been featured on Verse Daily.
