Solitary Plover

The Solitary Plover is the newsletter of the Friends of Lorine Niedecker, currently produced by Amy Lutzke. Our poetry editor is Tom Montag. It is issued twice each year, in winter and in summer. We prefer to deliver the newsletter electronically but if you do not have access to email we can send you a printed copy.

Submission Guidelines

We accept submissions from the public for the newsletter. Items considered for publication include: essays, book reviews, events related to poetry and/or Niedecker, and news items related to poetry and/or Niedecker. In addition, we will consider excellent original poetry which honors Lorine Niedecker in theme, style, or content. We have not yet established limits on the size of submissions. Please send your submission as an email attachment in .doc, .docx, .rtf or .txt format.
