In Review



The Volta focuses on reviewing books of poetry, hybrid-genre work associated with poetry, works of poetics, and poetry criticism, as well as books of interest to the poetry community. We do not review works in other areas. Please do not send us self-help books, young adult fiction, etc., as these will be immediately recycled.

We do not accept electronic files for review. Please send us finished books or bound galleys of forthcoming titles.

For review consideration, authors or publishers should send copies of the work to both addresses below (Note: we may request a third copy to be sent to one of our reviewers in the future):
