The Reverie: Now Open!


What is The Reverie?

The Reverie is a poetic publication that features submitted original work in a biannual journal.

Which is a fancy way of saying, we are looking for your work! We will be hosting weekly prompts here to get the creative juices flowing, but during our reading periods you are welcome to submit work to us for potential publication.

Please check out our Prompts Page and our Submission Guidelines for information on both of these options.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for poetry that is real, brutal, honest. We want the words you are afraid to speak out-loud. We want strong voices that cut through to the heart of the matter at hand. We want to step away from your poetry feeling a little raw. We want words that awaken emotion.

Most importantly, who are we?

Meet the editors!

Hasty Words


For me poetry is like a flashlight.  It searches all the dark corners of my mind for ghosts and cuts through shadows inside my heart where the devil likes to hide.  Poetry exposes them and gives all those things that try to eat my soul a way to say what they need to say.

I am not an educated writer and I am ashamed at how bad my grammar and punctuation can be however when it comes to poetry anything goes.  I want The Reverie to be a comfortable place where poets not only communicate through words but where we can all turn our tears AND our laughter into words.

This is going to be hard for some people to believe, but I was shy growing up. I had my friends that I hung out with, but most of my time was spent by myself with a book in my hand. I didn’t really have people to talk to about my life and what was going on in my head. So, I wrote about it. It gave me a voice. I could talk about those dark feelings, the confusion, the fear that stayed with me growing up without any recriminations. From there, it’s given me a community to talk to and friends who gets what it’s like to be a (weird) writer.

I want The Reverie to be a place where people can be themselves and just let it out. Be free with me.

I started writing poetry when I was in middle school – emotional, angst-filled lines that I insisted on rhyming at the expense of what I was trying to say. I have an entire binder full of those, let’s call them learning experiences. It wasn’t until college that I really started to write. It took that long for me to find my voice and to learn to be comfortable with it. I skipped right over poetry, positive that I would never be able to make the words bend to what I needed them to do. Quite egotistical of me, to think I could bend language. Years later and I’d finally learned how to let my voice and the words work together.

That’s what I want for Reverie. I want a place where people can learn and share in the triumphs of those who have found their voice. I want to hear new voices, a whole chorus of expressions that are bold and brave and real.
