Balladeers, modernists, surrealists, confessionals: any kind of poet can feature in LPM if their poetry takes skilful advantage of the glorious opportunities of the long poem. Ten Years of Long Poem Magazine showcases the variety and power of the form.

Issue 20 marks the 10th year of Long Poem Magazine. LPM is ambitious for contemporary poetry, reaching across continents to find the many ways of extending a poem, presenting the widest variety of stylistic approaches and attracting both major and emerging poets.
