Poetry Only

Not that poets don't like prose, but...

Diane Lockward has a nice post that lists poetry-only journals that she reads so that she doesn't find herself "skipping over the prose pieces to get to the poems."

As Diane says, these are "poetry with perhaps some reviews of poetry books, interviews with poets, and/or a poetics essay. A bit of art would be nice, too.

She includes: Poet Lore (Poetry and Reviews, occasional essay. Two issues per year.), Rattle (Poetry and interviews. Each issue has a section of poems solicited from a particular group, e.g., nurses, attorneys. Reviews are online. Two issues per year.), Southern Poetry Review (Pure poetry. Two issues per year.) and others.
