From Dream to Reality: Poecology Finds its Place

Poecology began as a slip of the tongue. I was 25 years old at the time, living on a coastal bluff in a town just south of San Francisco, California. I was a grad student studying poetry. When I graduated, I set up a blog, and hit the ground running. I began by seeking submissions, interviewing authors, learning web development in the late night hours, and spreading the word the best I could. Two years later, Poecology has become a lively online literary journal, publishing a diverse range of work by young writers and award-winning authors.

We have exciting plans for 2013 and beyond, which include bringing place-based literary arts education and publishing opportunities to local communities, in the Bay Area, North America, and beyond. Plans are in place to provide community education programs and a new, dynamic and interactive online reading experience that will transform the way the world reads and understands writing of place.

We need your support to make these big changes a reality. To find out more about our plans and ways you can help, send an email to Kristi at, or donate today.
