About Emerge…

“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.”

~ Henry David Thoreau

We are a new journal of online and print poetry dedicated to emerging poets and their words. We aim to publish poets who are currently emerging on the literary scene and seek those with less than five publishing credits. We recognize how hard it can be to get that first publishing credit and hope to be a foundation for the poets seeking to be published here.

We love prefer free verse–words with passion, voice, and place. We look for images that linger, that we can take with us to bed at night, ideas used in magnificent ways. Bring us your castles.
