Publisher’s description: Grand Little Things is a journal that embraces versification, lyricism, and formal poetry that focuses on anything, be it the expanse between the minutia of everyday life, to revelations on how we got here or why we use a thing called language. From grand concepts like spirituality, reality, existence to little things like emotions and human relationships to nature.
GLT focuses on formal poems, be they grand like the sestina or little, like the couplet from new, emerging, and established writers.
GLT caters to formalistic, stylized poetry, but it is welcome to invented/nonce forms as well. Heck, as long as there is a strong sense of versification—does the poem sing? Is the imagery vivid and serves a purpose? Does the poem have meaning? Or does it do away with such concepts?—it will be considered. However, GLT is not the best place for experimental poetry.
Language is small. It’s just markings that we’ve assigned meaning to. However, that meaning fills the entirety of our universe.
