Issue 80

June 14, 2019

Hello All,

Please note that the HPR is now accepting poems through submittable without any fees. With this mind, please limit yourself to one submission through per year. If you want to submit again, please send your poems by regular mail. We want to hear from as many new writers as possible. The HPR is still accepting email submissions from international writers.

Correction—the print version of Issue #80 contained an error in Stefan Lovasik’s poem, “Shining World.” The archived version contains the correction.
