Crosswinds Poetry Journal publishes one perfect bound issue each spring.
Our production standards are of high quality, and we seek the best English language poems we can find. We have no restrictions as to form and consider well-crafted poetry from all sources.
Crosswinds sponsors an annual poetry contest, judged by well regarded poets. For guidelines, visit our contest page.
