Rockvale Review is currently reading for its inaugural issue to be published in November. Seekers of “bold and vulnerable poetry,” Rockvale Review:
…believes language is power, and poetry is one conduit into unleashing that power. We believe poets have a unique way of seeing the world and sharing experiences, emotions, dreams and passions. Their voices raise awareness, challenge stereotypes, create beauty, pose questions, speak personal truths, and spark imagination. We wanted to create a poetry journal that celebrates the poetic voice and supports the journey of poets. All voices are welcome here.
Like many literary journals, Rockvale Review will publish online, but the flexibility of technology also allows its editors to live in various places around the Southeast and Midwest, North Carolina poet Nancy Posey among them. For the full masthead, click here.
