December hiatus

flourish 5




Heron Tree is taking a break from posting for the rest of December. Our submission period closed on December 1st, and our reading is underway.

Our weekly publication of new poems will resume on the evening of January 5th, and the roster of authors for the new year already includes K. R. Barger, Ash Bowen, Ruth Foley, Bernadette Geyer, Justin Hamm, Amorak Huey, Angie Macri, Lynn Pedersen, Brian Simoneau, and Emily Strauss.

In the meanwhile, please browse the poems in our 2013 and 2013-2014 archives to revisit old favorites or discover new ones—or head over to to buy the 2013 print edition.

Best wishes to all of you for a smooth end to your year; we’re grateful that you visited us in 2013, and we look forward to seeing you again in 2014!
