Apex Poetry

‘The tip of the spear’

Apex Poetry  is a UK based webzine which publishes only the best poetry. We favour imagistic poetry with an emphasis on rhythm over rhyme. Our focus is to showcase poetry with concrete details that enable the reader to sense the world created on the page. We love creative risks and experimental poems, even if they don’t always work.

Sadly we cannot contact everyone who submits work to us, so,  if you do not hear from us after two weeks from submitting work please note you have been unsuccessful at that time.
