About Us

At Stretch we believe that great poetry lives within us all. This is a literary journal open to all sorts of ideas and themes. From strange words written beyond the stars to in the moment poetry about the plant on your desk.

Poetry is a special language that can be used to express thoughts and emotions that may otherwise struggle to be understood. Everyone has thoughts. Everyone has emotions. So, it is the belief of this journal that everyone can enjoy the power of poetry.

We want to be another outlet for emerging and established poets of all kinds.

We publish annually and are always open to submissions.

If you have any questions or concerns please email stretchsubmissions@gmail.com. We’re also open to suggestions!

We just have a small staff of volunteers. Please be patient with response times.
