Kenning journal is open for submissions from May-August and from December-February. We hope to publish two times a year: once in October and once in March.

We want your page poetry & spoken word. We want your art. We want you to talk to us! We want you to get involved. To comment. To send us emails when you get excited about things we publish. We want you to know what a kenning is. A kenning is a compound word that (can) have a metaphorical meaning. Ring-rich is a generous person. Whale-road is the sea.

Please email kenningjournal@gmail.com with questions.
