The final Fight These Bastards is coming out around May 2009. The issue will be editing by Steve Henn and Oren Wagner, as Don Winter has left poetry.

The issue is now closed to general submissions.

By Fight These Bastards we mean fight against the mind-numbing poetry of such magazines as Poetry Chicago and Paris Review, with its foreign phrases, myriad of obscure allusions and cross-references. We are looking for poetry of revolt, against the Academy, against the poetic mainstream. We are looking for poetry accessible beyond the ivory towers of academia and outside the bounds of religious or politically correct restrictions. We enjoy poetry that celebrates honesty and humor. We enjoy poetry with some bite to it. We enjoy poetry that claims to represent the interests, views, or tastes of the common person, particularly as distinct from those of the rich and powerful. Please, no cute bunny poems, no overtly political poems, no knee-jerk, poorly-executed anti-(fill in the blank) poems.  Honesty and thought required.
