The Resurrectionist is a biannual poetry journal dedicated to modern formalist poetry. By modern we intend poetry that makes use of contemporary language and grammar, experiments with verse forms or that handles contemporary themes.
'Resurrectionist' (syn. 'Resurrection-man') is a 19th century English term for a body-snatcher whose main purpose was the resale of body parts to anatomy schools and researchers in the medical field. The application of the term for the journal is metaphoric and in direct retort to the openly stated assumption that formal verse (or metrical poetry) is a dead and/or no longer relevant art.
The Resurrectionist is not a Christian interest magazine, nor is it affiliated with any faith/belief system or religious organisation. That doesn't mean we won't review your christian themed poetry; just that your poetry should be modern and written to either established poetic form or custom metrical verse form.
