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

Please read our Submission Guidelines page, carefully, before submitting work.
