We’ve been busy uploading sample poems from past issues so that you can see all the great poems that we’ve published down through the years.
The most recent past issues include
, Poetry 2014 , and Pakistan , and you can find between 8-10 poem .pdfs per issue. This project (like the Poetry 2015 ) is time-consuming and slow-going, so be sure to check back periodically to see what “new” past issues we have available. Index Project
