Under a Warm Green Linden publishes reviews of poetry and interviews with established and emerging poets that deepen, illuminate, and complicate an understanding of their work. We are interested in excellent poetry of all subjects and styles by a diversity of authors.

•   We prefer reviews of forthcoming or recently published books of poetry or older books that warrant being newly considered. 

•   We prefer interviews and reviews that are at least 800 words. 

•   We do not consider reviews of self-published books or books of genres other than poetry. 

•   Reviewers and interviewers of accepted pieces will be featured in our contributors section.

•   Simultaneous submissions are allowed but discouraged; we respond within three weeks.

•   Please note that this call for reviews and interviews is not a request to send manuscripts for us to review.
