Tipton Poetry Journal - Fall 2006

Home Submission Guidelines

The first issue of the Tipton Poetry Journal consisted of poems written by poets who had attended the Tipton Poetry Reading, which met monthly from 2002 through 2005. The readings usually featured a prominent Indiana poet, always included an open mic format, and was attended by poets from the countryside and cities around Tipton, Indiana.

Although the monthly public format no longer exists, the Tipton Poetry Journal evolved from the energy of those public readings and is now a printed forum. In the words of J.L Kato, the first host of the Tipton Poetry Reading, "Poetry Alters Reality."

The Tipton Poetry Journal, located in the heartland of the Midwest, publishes quality poetry from Indiana and around the world.

This is the 4th issue of the Tipton Poetry Journal. Subscription guidelines and information about past issues are also available at:


Issue #4 is available for sale on-line now for $5.00 including shipping.
