We launched the Heron Tree website in August 2012 and published Heron Tree volume 1 in the course of 2013. We are proud to have reached volume 10 this year, and we’ve published some pamphlets and special issues along the way as well. We’re very grateful for all the good will we’ve received from readers and poets—thank you!

Now that the website is more than a decade old, its infrastructure needs some attention. For the next stretch of time we’ll be focusing on some necessary technological updates. Please excuse anything that may seem amiss on the site as we go through that process.

We usually open our submission window around this time, but we’ll be delaying that until we’ve taken care of the website. Stay tuned for information about Heron Tree volume 11 submissions and the forthcoming PDF collection of volume 10 poems. In the meanwhile, thanks for stopping by, and we hope you’ll enjoy browsing the archives.
