Able Muse predominantly publishes metrical poetry complemented by art and photography, fiction, non-fiction including essays, book reviews and interviews with a focus on metrical and formal poetry. We will also publish the exceptional free verse poem.
We look for well-crafted poems of any length or subject that employ skillful and imaginative use of meter and rhyme, executed in a contemporary idiom, that reads as naturally as your free verse poems.
All forms of formal poetry are welcome. For examples of what we're interested in, check the poetry of Philip Larkin, Elizabeth Bishop, James Merrill, Derek Walcott, Richard Wilbur, Marilyn Hacker, Anthony Hecht ...
