About Poemeleon

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 different kinds of poetry. To read past issues, hover over the "Issues" tab.

Poemeleon editorial staff includes Cati Porter (founder & editor-in-chief), Maureen Alsop, Ren Powell,  and Judy Kronenfeld (associate editors), Charlotte Davidson (prose editor) and Tom C. Hunley (book review editor), and published twice per year.

Poemeleon's past projects have included an annual summer reading and a contest series called The Mystery Box. We strive to nominate 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.
