THE CONTINENTAL REVIEW
Established in 2007, The Continental Review is one of the longest-running online literary magazines devoted to video poetics.
Suspended between two continents and two forms, providing an international haven for hybridized imagistic objects, the review is jointly edited by Nicholas Manning in Paris, France, and Jordan Stempleman in Kansas City, MO., USA.
Since 2005, Sprung Formal has been a student-edited and produced literary magazine. We pride ourselves on combining professional content with professional-grade student work, in a magazine that is itself an interesting object.
Windfall Room is a poetry publication & archive presenting high-quality video recitations.
We love all manner of poems. The most common way to experience a poem, even on digital platforms, is through the written word. Far less common by comparison, but no less wonderful, is to experience a poem well-recited by a human. We wish to be a place for recited poems.
Each issue Windfall Room publishes a poet reciting one of their own works in a high-quality audio/video format. There is no accompanying text version of the poem.
