Necessary Reading… Don’t Miss a Single Issue!

At Poetry Northwest, we believe in the nearly lost art of taking one’s time and reading deeply, in the peace of mind and clarity that good poetry delivers. Poetry Northwest is published semiannually, in July (Summer & Fall) and January (Winter & Spring). A yearly subscription of two issues costs only $25. You can also subscribe at the special rate of $42.00 for two years (4 issues). Email us at to purchase a $400.00 lifetime subscription; we’ll acknowledge your gift in print and online. All new subscriptions begin with the upcoming issue.

Our staff works hard to provide readers with a vital look at contemporary poetry, and subscribing is the best way to support the long tradition of Poetry Northwest in the coming year and beyond.
