Literally, fall/winter is here! The change of seasons is in full swing in Maine—our first ‘real’ snowfall arrived last weekend!

We’re very pleased to celebrate twenty-three full years of publishing with the release of our brand-new, hot-off-the-press Fall/Winter issue:

With it, we celebrate a special milestone—we have officially published our 1,500th poet. We also celebrate a very special recent review from NewPages (you can read it here: In short, NewPages says: “The Aurorean is a powerhouse of poetry…[It] is more than a journal of poetry. It is a community of writers who, while being brought into a collection by editors, seem more like a symposium of poets who planned this publication to gift to their readers—which speaks to the skills of said editors…[It] is a jam-packed journal of poetic delights, one to add to a subscription list.” We couldn’t be more pleased.

So, hunker down and enjoy all the poems packed into this issue. Order yours here: We especially welcome our Featured Poets Becky Kennedy, and Roberta Marggraff, as well as Showcase Poets Tobi Alfier, Holly Day, George Guida, and Ed Meek, and our Bookend Poets Thomas Griffin, and Tzynya Pinchback.
