Mantis is soliciting reviews and critical pieces. We publish ~2000 word reviews of contemporary poetry in English or in translation and other critical pieces treating issues in contemporary poetry and poetics (surveys of trends in contemporary poetry, interviews, theoretically oriented reflections, etc.)

The final deadline is January 5.


Mantis: A Journal of Poetry, Criticism, and Translation is looking for original poetry and poetry in translation. An annual publication on all issues poetic, Mantis is housed at the Division of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages at Stanford University. It seeks work from talented poets, translators, and critics. Our scope is both local and international, and we've run features on the poetry of Greek Austerity, the Seattle-based poetry collaborative Re Drum, and the next generation of Chinese poets. We regularly review contemporary poetry and poetry translations. All issues include new poetry in English.

Recent contributors have included Ben Doller, Yoko Tawada (Japanese), John Felstiner, G.C. Waldrep, T.R. Hummer, Nonna Slepakova (Russian), Kim Simonsen (Faroese), H. L. Hix, Natalie Shapero, Ghassan Zaqtan (Palenstian), Lyn Hejinian, Fady Joudah, Li Hao (Chinese), and Michael Goldman.
