Stone is an online poetry journal that publishes poems ranging from the visceral to the cerebral across a full scope of human experience and awareness. Stone prefers to publish poems that present a diversity of contemporary perspectives and are well-crafted, artistic explorations of language, subject, and image.

Beginning May, 2022, Stone Poetry Journal will be re-named

Stone Poetry Quarterly

We highly recommend that potential contributors read one of our past issues to have a sense of the sorts of poetry we publish.

Stone Poetry Journal publishes online in November and May.
