About Poetry Northwest
The mission of Poetry Northwest remains what it has been since its founding in 1959—to give place and attention to each poem it publishes, to serve as a gateway for emerging writers, to represent its vital corner of the continent to a broader audience, and to attract and sustain readers with the promise of discovery. In every issue of the magazine as well online and in books, Poetry Northwest is interested in the ways that poetry intersects with the other arts and sciences, the way that poetry has adapted to new modes of composition and distribution, and the role that poetry can play in restoring sanity, nuance, and balance to civic discourse. At the root of this vision, though, is the poem itself—its unique and special propensity for binding together the varieties of experience in words, form and feeling.
