Since January 2000, Beltway Poetry Quarterly has published poetry by authors who live or work in the capital of the United States. Kim Roberts edits three issues a year, and the fourth issue is guest edited by another area writer (who has previously been featured in an issue). Each issue typically features four to eight poems by five authors. We have included Pulitzer Prize winners and those who have never previously published. We publish academic, spoken word, and experimental authors--and also those poets whose work defies categorization.
