Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
SRPR is a volunteer-based, nonprofit poetry journal housed at Illinois State University in Normal, IL, produced by ISU's Publications Unit, and operated by the Spoon River Poetry Association, a recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit literary organization. It has been in continuous publication since 1976. Each issue publishes new poetry in English and in translation, includes a chapbook-length Illinois Poet showcase and interview, and features an article-length review essay, which investigates three or more books of contemporary poetry that have a formal, thematic, or subject-based connection. SRPR's three pillars are poetry, community, and legacy.
