Editorial Focus: 

A NARROW FELLOW is a journal of poetry. The name of our journal comes from one of Emily Dickinson's poems about a narrow fellow in the grass. We focus on selecting the very best in contemporary poetry from the U.S. and abroad.

Tips From the Editor: 

We publish poems that are narrow, thin, and one page in length. Poems that tell stories. Just having an MFA won't get you published in ANF, so send us your very best work formatted per our guidelines. Read Gregory Orr's Temperaments of Poetry to get an idea of what makes a great poem. We always look for fresh voices as well as outstanding work from established poets. We use raw sugar instead of processed white. We do not like jigsaw puzzles with too many pieces. We like to go on trips to exotic locales as long as we can find our way home. A good snake poem is cool every once in a while, but we are not into breeding ball pythons. You will not find many rhymes or clichés on our pages.
