About the Journal

Burlington Poetry Journal is an independent publication that is dedicated to the concept that art should be free and accessible to everyone. In a world with so many voices we believe in a community based, eclectic approach to the publication of poetry. Therefore, the BPJ will always welcome any form or style within its pages. We are currently working towards achieving a non-profit 501(c)3 status.

Just caught the announcement about this from Poemshape. Added a link to here on my poetry blog, and am wondering when the next submission deadline will be?
