and a reminder: periodicities is open to submissions of previously unpublished poetry-related reviews, interviews and essays. Please send submissions as .doc with author biography to periodicityjournal (at)

For the time being, submissions of previously unpublished poetry will be by solicitation-only, with the exception of translated works (which you should very much send along).

And while this might be an extension of above/ground press, might this be the time to mention that you can subscribe to the press' 28th year? Given I'm producing up to seventy chapbooks or so a year, it is a pretty good deal.
