Bones6.pdf. PN Review Online Poetry Literary Magazine - About Us. Launched as Poetry Nation, a twice-yearly hardback, in 1973, PN Review in A4 paperback format began quarterly publication in 1976 and has appeared six times a year since PN Review 21 in 1981. Each issue includes an editorial, letters, news and notes, articles, interviews, features, poems, translations, and a substantial book review section. Poetry Nation was founded by Michael Schmidt and Professor Brian Cox at the Victoria University of Manchester. Cox and Schmidt were joined on the editorial board by Professor Donald Davie and C.H. Sisson. Through all its twists and turns, responding to social, technological and cultural change, PN Review has stayed the course. 'It has [...] attempted to take poetry out of the backwaters of intellectual life and to find in it again the crucial index of cultural health.

Contest. ​​We will read submissions for the second annual Jane Lumley Prize between September 1 and November 30, 2015. Jane Lumley was primarily a translator, and was the first writer to translate Euripedes into English. At the same time, she was also a prolific writer, and authored over 120 poems in her lifetime. However, these never found publication due to the societal inhibitions placed on women in the sixteenth century English society. The Jane Lumley Prize is awarded annually to a writer who has yet not published a full length book of poetry or prose. The prize alternates each year between prose and poetry. ​ The winner, selected by the editor-in-chief, will receive a prize of $300 and will be featured in the journal.

Publication will also be awarded to the first two semi-finalists. The Jane Lumley Prize will only be awarded to writers who have not published a full length book. ​ You may submit a maximum of six pieces for consideration in a single word document. ​ (September 1-November 30) About.
