Among its meanings, an annulet is chiefly a little ring.
Annulet: A Journal of Poetics publishes poetry, prose, and literary criticism.
As a biannual literary magazine, Annulet seeks to publish poetry that tracks its material nature, whether in language or in form, and prose whose sentences stretch toward, or must be parsed as or with, poetics. We would like to read texts that live in between these states (especially for prose) as well as those poems keening closely with their form.
Equally, Annulet seeks dynamic literary criticism in two forms: short and long.
We introduce the annulet, or a short form close read, as our form of critique. Scholarly at heart (like this) and approachable in practice, these annulets should consider: one poem, or one excerptable prose section. Consider it the cherry of an article, and more fun. Long form criticism, or comparatives, should consider more than one thing in conjunction with each other.
Along with critical essays, we will publish literary essays, comment on topics in poetics, and reviews.
Annulet will release its first issue in 2021.
