Welcome to Poetry South!

Poetry South's longtime editor, John Zheng, asked The W to take over the magazine, starting with Issue 8 in 2016. John continues to edit Valley Voices and the Journal of Ethnic American Literature and will remain on the masthead as Contributing & Advisory Editor along with Angela Ball, Carolyn Elkins, and Ted Haddin. Kendall Dunkelberg will step in as Editor, and the MFA program in Creative Writing will produce the magazine.

One of our first tasks has been to set up a website and increase the presence of Poetry South online. The magazine will remain a print journal, but we have now made archives of all past issues available online. Sample poems from our new issue will be available soon on our Poetry page, which also features our list of new books by Southern poets.
