The Montucky Review is a web based poetry publication that seeks well crafted wordplay from both established and novice writers alike. We hope to be the antithesis of all the snootiness and pretension that dominates the poetry publishing world. That is not to say that we will publish everything that comes our way, we won't. We want good writing. Well established writer or first submission, you have an equal chance of being published or rejected. We look for poetry we like, with "like" being very subjective, indeed. We "like" what we like, and that ranges from the ridiculous to the sublime. If it moves us in some way, we like. People we like include Billy Collins, Bukowski, Kim Addonizio, Hugh Fox, Jim Harrison, Margaret Atwood, Sylvia Plath, and many of the well known poets that regularly publish around the web and in print. You know who they are. If you don't, surf a bit. We read and publish on a rolling basis and will try to publish 2-3 new pieces per week, depending on the quality of submissions we receive.
We hope to do an annual or semi-annual print edition featuring the best of the best. Stay tuned.
