Just in time for National Poetry Month – find open access poetry journals all in one place in a new, custom e-collection at the University Libraries!
From Abalone Moon to Valparaiso Poetry Review, you can now enjoy over sixty (60) open access poetry journals anyplace, anytime. Open access (OA) means that no paid subscription is required and typically no login restriction is imposed. While there may be no subscription cost, please be assured that these journals are part of EBSCO’s database of thousands of OA journals not only because of their commitment to the OA sharing model of publication but also because they operate under the same rigors of research and scholarship as other academic journals.
While these journals were previously available in our EBSCOhost database of OA journals, they were not easy to locate by subject until our cataloging department worked with our e-journal management vendor (EBSCO) to make this easy, custom collection of poetry titles possible. Alternatively, you can also find OA poetry journals by doing this search in our catalog.
Take some time out from studying today to enjoy browsing these journals! You may even find an opportunity to submit a work of your own.

Elisabeth Tonnard, an artist and poet working in the areas of artists’ books, photography, and conceptual literature, will present a talk about her art on Wednesday, October 10, at noon in the Ward M. Canaday Center for Special Collections on the fifth floor of Carlson Library on UT’s main campus.
Since 2003, Tonnard has published 25 books, which are included in numerous private and public collections. Her work features how visual culture and visual events are seen in the light of literature. Tonnard’s books have won numerous awards, including the jury prize of the Sheffield International Artists’ Book Prize last year. Her works have been exhibited widely, and she is a member of the Artists’ Book Cooperative.
Tonnard received a master’s of arts in literature from Radbound University in the Netherlands, and a master’s of fine arts from the Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, New York. She lives and works in the Netherlands.
A reception will follow her talk. This talk is co-sponsored by the Friends of the University Libraries. For more information, contact David Remaklus, Carlson Library, at 419-530-4030.
