From the Editor
“By and by” evokes the humid warmth of Southern hymns, the comfort of a grandmother or grandfather, the all-encompassing belief in the future. A term that once denoted a sense of immediacy, “by and by” now implies an eventual hereafter.
By&By Poetry, founded in 2015, aims to provide an eclectic online showcase for both established and up-and-coming poets. We are interested in publishing a variety of poetic forms, including structured formal verse and experimental forms. If you stumble upon or whittle away a found poem, send it our way. If you invent a variation on the villanelle, we’d love to read it. If you’ve never submitted a poem for publication, submit it to us. We aspire to shape By&By into a celebration of poetry, a place where poets can congregate, read, and be heard. Join us.
By&By reads year-round. We welcome submissions of any poetic form or style, including but not limited to formal poetry (especially pantoums, sonnets, and invented forms), experimental poetry, found poetry, and, of course, free verse. Please submit poems that you’re really proud of. Try us: we’re open to a diversity of topics, perspectives, and methods.
