Like many of yours, my life has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 health crisis, and unfortunately, it’s been challenging to give the necessary attention to Measure Review. For now, I know we all need to focus on taking the right precautions to take care of ourselves, our loved ones and our greater communities—myself included.

Even so, I want our readers to know that—while our publishing schedule may be more intermittent in the coming weeks—Measure Review is far from finished.

Poetry serves an essential need in difficult times like these, and I will continue to post new poems as time allows—but when you’re missing new poems from Measure Review, I encourage you to spend a little time in our archives, reading the recommended poems at below each new poem, and exploring poetry by formal constraint with our tag cloud.

Until soon,

ASHLEY ANNA MCHUGH

We publish one new poem every week. If your poems might be a good fit, please consider submitting your work.
