STONE TELLING is a poetry magazine co-edited by Rose Lemberg and Shweta Narayan. They are looking for literary speculative poems with a strong emotional core. They focus on fantasy, science fiction, surrealism, and slipstream, but are happy to consider science poetry and literary poetry without a fantastic element as long as it fits the flavor of the magazine. Please note that they are not a mainstream literary poetry market, and poetry without a speculative element would be a hard sell.
