Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
As the Northwest's oldest literary magazine (established in 1959), we publish the best in contemporary poetry, especially work willing to take risks and push readers to the emotional and intellectual edge of what poetry makes possible. Each issue of our magazine is designed to surprise and delight, and we pride ourselves on having held our readers' interest for more than 60 years.
