Signs Following explores how the language of poetry can engage with history, temporality, and the fact of embodiment in the physical world of change and difference, while yearning for some transcendent guarantee of meaning.

Free Verse Editions represents a joint venture betweenFree Verse: A Journal of Contemporary Poetry & Poetics and Parlor Press. Te series will publis tree to five books of poetry per year. We are especially interested in collections tat use language to dramatize a singular vision of experience, a mastery of craft, a deep knowledge of poetic tradition, and a willingness to take risks. As its title suggests, te series is oriented toward free verse, but we will appily consider poetry written in traditional forms. Collections sould ave individual poems publised in well-known journals. We will read collections tat do not ave a track record of publications, but it is unlikely tat tey will be accepted for publication. For more information about te series, visit te website: ttp://tml.Free Versejournal is on te Web at ttp://englis.c
