The Country Dog Review is a journal of poetry, book reviews, and interviews. We are interested in the work of emerging and established poets. Despite our title, we are not a regional journal, rather we are interested in reading work from national and international writers who are committed to excellence in poetry. We are eclectic in our tastes, and are open to most styles and subjects. Please don't only send us your dog poems; we rarely publish poetry about dogs.
We publish two issues a year, and hope to print an annual anthology by year's end. We are now accepting submissions for The Argos Prize.
