What is changing with Poetry's publication schedule (new winter double issue)?

What is changing?

Starting summer 2023, we will be publishing two double issues per year:

  • Winter: January/February
  • Summer: July/August

Poetry has been publishing a double issue in the summer since 2004, so the only change is the introduction of the winter issue.

Why are you making this change?

We see our double issues as a special occasion and an opportunity to share different kinds of content. We’re excited to start offering them twice per year. Keep an eye out for special digital features as well!

I was just about to subscribe. What does this mean for me?

Starting July 1, 2023—the publication of our summer double issue—all new subscriptions and renewals will be for 10 issues per year.

I’m already a subscriber. How will this affect my subscription?

If you were already a print or digital subscriber at the end of June 2023, you will receive the number of issues that complete your current subscription: 11 issues for a one-year subscription, 22 issues for a two-year subscription, etc. For example, if your one-year subscription was set to expire with the February 2024 issue, your subscription will now expire with the March 2024 issue.

When you renew your subscription, you will receive 10 issues per year.

If you’d like to know when your subscription expires, you can visit our self-service portal or contact [email protected].

Will I be refunded for the missing issue?

We are extending your subscription to make up for this change, so you won’t miss any issues; you will receive the same number of issues you paid for when you subscribed.

Will you be publishing the same amount of poems per year?

Yes! Our double issues mean the same amount of poetry per year, just in a combined package.

If you have any further questions on your subscription, please contact [email protected] or visit our self-service portal.
