Welcome to our Book Links Party!

In honor of National Poetry Month, Gyroscope Review solicited information on poetry books and chapbooks published within the last year from our friends on Facebook.  What we wanted was to share as many links as we could to poetry that deserves to be read, savored, honored.

Poets work hard. They don’t always get paid. And PR for a book or chapbook of poetry is a challenge. We want to do our part to make it better for the poets among us.

And now, without further ado, here is what we’ve gathered so far from the call we put out (in alphabetical order by author). Share it, follow the links, acquire some poetry for yourself.

If you are a poet with a book/chapbook published in the last year (since last National Poetry Month), and you would like to be part of this effort, contact us: If we get more responses, we will do another post this month.

Our First Anniversary Issue!

It’s here – our first anniversary issue, the Spring 2016 edition of Gyroscope Review. You may access this issue here.

If you are viewing this from a smart phone or a tablet, then please go to our Issues tab for a PDF link.

We’re excited and proud of our first year of publication. The poems that we’ve had the privilege to read, the authors with whom we had to honor of working, and the magazines that we’ve put together for everyone’s reading pleasure have all been just what we’d hoped for: a way to participate in a community of writers and readers who care deeply about sharing their visions and talents.

We hope you enjoy Gyroscope Review. Share it everywhere. And come tell us what you think at our Facebook First Anniversary Happy Hour event today, April 1, from 7-8 p.m. Central Daylight Time. We will be online, ready to answer questions and comments and just have fun as we kick off National Poetry Month. Here is the link to our Facebook event page: See you there!
