Editors are working 
on selecting works
for the 2021 print edition


We are interested in works that have the courage to acknowledge, challenge, and celebrate modern Jewish life beyond distinctions of secular and sacred. We like accessible works that find fresh meaning in old traditions that recognize the challenges of our generation. We evaluate works on several levels, including their skillful use of craft, their ability to hold interest, and layers of meaning. Poetica Magazine is an independent, international, free-access literary magazine dedicated to publishing the finest poetry by accomplished, well-established authors - side by side - with fresh, emerging voices.  We publish original works by Jewish and non-Jewish writers alike.
