ABOUT US



Our Mission:  Our mission is to bring a little more good poetry 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 piece 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 submissions, whether accepted or rejected, receive personal responses from a member of the editorial staff--a courtesy that is almost unheard of these days.  

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
18 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
A William Stafford Poetry Prize Winner
A Writer's Digest Poetry Award 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, 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
