Event Details

Under a Warm Green Linden, launched in 2008, is a biannual digital poetry journal published each solstice. Reviews and interviews with established and emerging poets are intended to deepen, illuminate, and complicate an understanding of their work; and excellent poetry by a diversity of authors in a variety of styles illustrates our conviction that poetry encourages an engagement with our deepest truths, challenges, fears, and joys.

The Essential Voices anthology series intends to make less insular the various poetries of the world, to bridge readers to cultures misunderstood and under- or misrepresented. It has at its heart the ancient idea that poetry can unite us by revealing our shared humanity.

This anthology, the second in the series, will feature new or recent poetry by living queer U.S. poets. (using “queer” in the broad sense: people who live outside mainstream sexual and gender norms.)
