Launched in 1996, American Poets magazine is published in April and October each year exclusively for the members of the Academy of American Poets. The features in the publication are written by some of today’s most acclaimed and influential poets. The magazine’s many notable essays have included Frank Bidart on Robert Lowell’s revision process, Mark Doty on metaphor, Terrance Hayes on sentimentality, Christine Hume on hybrid poetries, Thylias Moss on poetry’s limits, Gerald Stern on Hart Crane, and Rosemarie Waldrop on contemporary French poetry.
The Introducing series has showcased over forty promising, cutting-edge poets, many of whom have gone on to publish prize-winning poetry collections. Interviews have highlighted conversations with such luminaries as Eavan Boland, Rita Dove, Jorie Graham, Philip Levine, Stanley Kunitz, Robert Pinsky, and James Tate. The Books Noted section gives readers a helpful perspective on the world of poetry publishing. And of course, each article—be it a manifesto or a memorial—is accompanied by remarkable poems.
