Journal r.kv.r.y. quarterly

We look for a story to tell us something universal about the human condition. Just because our theme is "recovery" doesn't mean that all of what we publish is about successful recovery. Often it's not the recovery story that says the most about the process of recovering. We like work that shows heart and depth of character.

Journal Radar Poetry

A writer-friend of ours once said, "Great poems make everyone sick." We believe the most successful poems keep you up at night and follow you all day. They might even feel unsettling or unnerving. That's because great poems make you question everything you thought you knew. We are looking for work that has that effect on us.
