American Poetry Review
If you like only light lyrical poetry with uplifting messages, this is not the magazine for you. There are many other periodicals that address more accessible poetry. The poems and articles in this magazine do demand more time and a background in writing and literature to fully appreciate them.
This reviewer says that he has been reading American Poetry for years, and says the poetry is usually awful and the writers are terrible. I question why he would continue to read the publication for years if he finds it so inferior to other literary magazines. Most people have a limited amount of time and would not continue to give so many chances to writing that has failed them so frequently. If I had not already been a reader and fan of APR, that alone would tempt me to read it. What is it that has pulled him back to it for years????

APR, like most other literary magazines, suffers from the myopic view of most humanities publications: the editors tend to select writing that ignores goings-on in science, technology and interdisciplinary confluences.
This periodical has one disagreeable feature. The large format, low quality paper may attract some, but I find it in opposition to the very nature of poetry. There's something wrong about finding walked-over, muddy copies of APR on the floor of your local Starbucks along with used car ads from your local newspaper. Or would that be a good thing? I've subscribed off and on for a couple of decades, and it's, by design, not a satisfying collectible.
I tried reading it on Zinio over the last year, but the Zinio UI seems to have been designed by Martians.
Anyway, I just renewed my subscription about a month ago--this time at full price :). I can say I'm willing to pay that extra $10 because the magazine is quite worth it. I even decided to gift one to a friend of mine!
