Poem is a world-class poetry magazine for the best poetry in, and translated into, English. Set to become the leading English-language poetry periodical, Poem advocates international writing without barriers, bringing today’s best poetry together on a world stage.
In our highly-connected world, in which another continent is only a keypad button away, there is a pressing need for an international, and internationalist, magazine to select and showcase world poetry, just as festivals and biennales do film and visual art. Poem takes excellence of translation for granted, and so advocates international writing without barriers. Its content includes:
-the very newest work by the best poets, young as well as celebrated; -“primary” prose by poets and world-leading critics – anything from literary gad-flying to novel extracts – encouraging the essay form, memoir, interview; -occasional reviews; -the occasional frontispiece/picture-essay of black-and-white photos or prints.
