Poemeleon: A Journal of Poetry was founded in December of 2005. Each issue is devoted to a specific kind of poetry. The first issue, dedicated to the poetry of place, launched in June 2006, with subsequent issues dedicated to ekphrastic poetry (volume I issue 2), poems in form (volume II issue 1), prose poems (volume II issue 2), persona poems (volume III issue 1), humor (volume III issue 2), gender (volume IV issue 1,) and collaboration (volume IV issue 2).
Poemeleon is edited by Cati Porter (founder & editor-in-chief), Maureen Alsop, Ren Powell, and Judy Kronenfeld (associate editors), and Tom C. Hunley (book review editor), and published twice per year.
Poemeleon hosts an annual summer reading, runs an ongoing contest series called The Mystery Box, and nominates for prize anthologies such as the Pushcart and Best of the Net, with work included in Meridian's Best New Poets series (University of Viriginia Press), Sundress Press' Best of the Net Anthology, and Best New Poems Online.
