The Verse site is looking to go beyond publishing reviews of poetry, fiction, criticism, journals, and chapbooks. Although we will still publish those kinds of reviews, we'd like to invite writers to submit reviews of other kinds of books--graphic novels, biographies, nonfiction, current events, etc.--as well as reviews of movies, video games, and music.
We won't issue calls for reviews, so please query if you're considering writing/submitting something. You can query Verse by emailing Brian Henry at bhenr [at] yahoo [dot] com. Deadline: April 1, 2007.
We also have discontinued posting open calls for reviews of books and journals. Over the past two years, we've sent over 100 books and journals into the void, with no reviews coming back. This wastes publishers' resources, time, money, and the opportunity to discuss new books. We also will accept queries for reviews of poetry, fiction, criticism, journals, and chapbooks.
