This highly-anticipated issue surprised us by eliciting an intense response from poets who sent work for our consideration. We are so grateful to have opened our doors for a demographic that is too often pushed aside even as they have powerful words and visions to share. This issue offers 41 authors, some of whom are not over-50 women poets but whose poetry, which came in through our general submissions, nicely dovetails with the themed work. We hope you will not only enjoy this issue, but will find yourself moved to think about and discuss this work for a long time to come.

But wait – that’s not all.
We have two calls for submissions open for our Spring 2018 issue. One is our general submissions category and the other is a themed category in honor of our third anniversary issue. The theme is “threes”. Please follow the links to our submissions system HERE for further information. Both categories will remain open until March 15.
Finally, we extend a warm welcome to our new staff member, assistant editor Joshua A. Colwell. He joins us with plenty of experience working for small publications, an interest in writing, and a keen eye to finding just the kind of poetry we love here at Gyroscope Review: modern verse with plenty of bite. Josh is taking over our Twitter feed, so now’s the time to start following us if you haven’t already. We’re really glad he’s here. You can read more about him in our masthead.
It’s here! Our winter issue is now available – click on the link below the cover photo to read issue 17-1.
We are truly pleased to offer a diverse group of poetic voices and hope you find something that lodges itself in your head or your heart. We welcome poets new to us as well as old friends who never fail to make us think. Enjoy this first issue of 2017. Know what else? This is our very first edition that you can purchase in print! It’s available on Amazon here.
We are also pleased to announce that, along with our regular submissions which are now open until March 15, we have a themed call for submissions in honor of our April 2017 second anniversary issue:
“Planting Ourselves” – In the moving, transient world, how do you plant yourself? Do you plant yourself in place or are you a tumbleweed who scatters bits over a wide area? Are your roots shallow or deep? Are you a perennial or an annual? Must you be carried to a new place via a power other than your own? Dig deeply. Unearth your own gems.
The themed call for submissions honors our usual guidelines regarding previous publication and number of submissions, among other things. Please read the complete guidelines before any submissions, themed or regular.
Thank you for being part of the Gyroscope Review community of readers, writers, and poetry-lovers. We wish you all the best in this new year.
