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. Accordingly, Poetry Northwest is published twice annually, in June (Summer & Fall) and December (Winter & Spring). A yearly subscription of two fine issues costs only $22. You can also subscribe at the special rate of $36.00 for two years (4 issues) or $60.00 for four years (8 issues)—a more than 1/3 discount on our regular subscription price. For $400.00 you can receive a lifetime subscription and we will acknowledge your gift in print and online.

Our staff works hard to provide readers with a vital look at contemporary poetry. With your support, we’ll continue the long tradition of Poetry Northwest in the coming year, and beyond.
