A quick note today to get the word out about one of my favorite online journals, Heron Tree (full disclosure: the good people at Heron Tree have published my work).

If you’re not already reading Heron Tree, I recommend it. I love their format. They publish one poem each week online, and then compile the year’s worth of poems in a printed edition. It’s a win-win: you get to live with one poem each week all throughout the year… then find the poems all over again in the bound edition. I often reach for my copies for inspiration before drafting… gathering a few words here and there, maybe using the map (or structure ) of one of the poems.

Heron Tree is open for submissions until June 1. They read blind (I love this about them). Send them your best! Guidelines are at this link.
