ABOUT US



Our Mission:  Our mission is to bring a little more good poetry and art into the world.  

Viewing:  The e-zine is best viewed on a computer screen.  There have been reports of word wrap when viewing on a Smartphone.  Choosing "View web version," which should appear at the bottom of the post, usually corrects the problem.  Switching to landscape mode may also correct the problem.  

Frequent Contributor Status is bestowed upon a select few up-and-coming, and established poets hand picked by the Editor-in-Chief.  Membership in this exclusive group is by invitation only.
What Sets Us Apart:  What makes Songs of Eretz unique is that we feature the poet as much as the poetry.  Each poem is thoughtfully presented, paired with artwork (with rare exceptions as for concrete poems), and accompanied by the poet's bio, the poet's notes (if the poet so desires), and sometimes an editor's note.  In addition, all poetry submissions, whether accepted or rejected, receive personal responses from a member of the editorial staff--a courtesy that is almost unheard of these days.  We occasionally provide such feedback for art submissions.  Guest artists are also given the opportunity to have their bios and notes (if desired) published.

History:  Since its inception in June 2014, the Poetry Review has featured poets and authors with impressive credentials including:

1 Current State Poet Laureate
3 Former State Poets Laureate
2 Former Local Poets Laureate
30 Current or Former College/University Professors
20 Current or Former Magazine Editors
A Brams Stoker Award Winner
An Emerson Prize Winner
A Guggenheim Fellowship in Poetry Recipient
A 4-time Pushcart Prize Winner

Most of the poets published in the Review have had work published in other prestigious journals.  Many have also had collections published.  And many more are up-and-coming poets and writers whose voices are just beginning to be heard.  

Poets and writers from all over the United States and several other countries have contributed to the Review, including:

United States:  Alabama, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, & Wisconsin

The Songs of Eretz Ion Internship

The Songs of Eretz Ion Internship is open to community college students and recent graduates.  Interns participate in an individualized research program with Songs of Eretz Associate Editor James F. W. Rowe, a philosophy doctoral student at the University of Illinois, Urbana.  The six-week program is named after the titular character of Ion, one of Plato’s shortest dialogues. 

 

The internship is designed to help prepare students to continue their studies at a four-year university, and combines both literary and philosophical work.  By its conclusion, students will have written a short philosophical essay on a work of poetry that will be granted permissive consideration for publication in Songs of Eretz Poetry Review.  Interns can further expect to participate in writing and research that will be tailor-made to their interests and current levels of experience.

 

In addition to the potential for publication of their essays, upon successful completion of the program, interns will be entitled to letters of recommendation from James F. W. Rowe that should aid in obtaining future academic and professional positions.   Though academically and personally rewarding, the internship does not provide college credit at this time. 

 

Applicants may apply for the internship as follows:

 

1. Complete the career program workshops and training at www.beartech.io.

 

2. Upon completion of the workshops and training, communicate to hanksze@beartech.io that you wish to work with James F.W. Rowe for the Songs of Eretz Ion Internship.

 

Please address questions regarding the internship to jfwroweeretz@gmail.com.
