Plainsongs’ title suggests not only its location on the Great Plains, but also its preference for the living language, whether in free or formal verse. Published twice a year from our home base in Hastings, Nebraska, Plainsongs presents poems that seem to be aware of modernist and post-modernist influences, not necessarily by imitation or allusion, but by using the tools provided by that rich heritage. Poets from all 50 states and many foreign countries contribute regularly to Plainsongs. Click here to see covers and select pages from recent issues or to subscribe to Plainsongs.
