Publisher’s Description: One of the longest-running literary journals, The Cape Rock publishes excellent poetry from both established and emerging poets. We appreciate poems that take the Dickinsonian top of your head off, show skill with poetic devices, risk new visions, and employ surprising but effective wordplay. All rights revert to the author upon publication.
Recent contributors include Kevin Stein, Leslie Ullman, James Crews, Mary Crow, Angie Macri, Dick Allen, Bern Mulvey, Jeff Gundy, and Malaika Favorite. The Cape Rock hosts the annual Vern Cowles $1,000 Prize for a Trinity of Poems.
