Topical Poetry literary magazine cover image

Publishing new content every two weeks, Topical Poetry is an online journal readers will want to subscribe to (for free) to stay up to date on the newest posts. As the name suggests, contributors offer works in response to current events and news – what a great resource to bring into any classroom. “Poetry on current events can be transformational, thought-provoking, and everlasting.” Recent works include “Asian Solidarity” by Jenn Martin, “Still Here” by Buff Whitman-Bradley, “In New York We say” by Elizabeth Schmermund, “CLIMATES CHANGE” by Joanne Kennedy Frazer, “Man in Flames” by Matthew Murrey, “UVALDE 2022” by Dale Hensarling, and “Not Completely Safe” by Jacqueline Jules. Topical Poetry is free to read online and accepts submissions based on public news/events, preferably from the previous or current week – which means a fast turnaround time on acceptance.
