Web Site of the Week: Mudlark: An Electronic Journal of Poetry & Poetics
The online poetry journal Mudlark has been publishing short, sharp, energetic poetry for more than 20 years. Listed on the New York Public Library’s “Best of the Web,” among other accolades, Mudlark combines the quality one might expect from a print edition with the accessibility only the internet can provide. Recent poems have included Jane Medved’s series “A Crown of Sonnets,” which bends the classic form to an aesthetic that is exceptionally contemporary, as well as poems by Marcela Sulak, Martha Zweig, and Mark Down among many others. In addition to poems and featured poets, the journal also features short essays on poetics. Readers will find much to explore in the extensive archives, which feature hundreds of poems dating back to the 1995 inaugural issue. [CNH]
