Editorial Focus: 

Burner is that girl. She's witty, pretty, and doesn't dumb
herself down. By day, she's a kindergarten teacher and by night, dances
gogo. Inspired by fellow revolutionaries from John Lennon to Virginia
Woolf, she's a muse and amusing, compelling and never complacent. The
Burner girl gets hot and bothered by the Marquis de Lafayette, aspires
to redefine the zeitgeist like Nietzsche, and provokes thought like
Margaret Atwood.

Editorial Focus: 

“Radius” is an online literary journal in blog format
dedicated to poetry: How poetry works, how one poem or body of poems
connects to another, how poetry exists in the world. We’re big believers that poetry doesn’t exist in a vacuum, and that it has a
role to play in life, politics and culture.


Tips From the Editor: 

We're open to submissions of poetry and literary criticism year-round, but please read the guidelines carefully, as we're looking for very specific things, including political poetry, elegies for poets and invented forms.
