Light



Note: remove name from manuscripts to

Light is published by the nonprofit, nonpartisan Foundation for Light Verse, Inc. Its twice-yearly issues feature funny, well-crafted verse about all sorts of things. Its Poems of the Week are inspired by topics currently in the news (political or otherwise).

We’re open to work from the left or the right,
to formal or free verse, refined or with bite,
to thought that’s like ours or that’s different by half:
we just want good stuff that’ll make people laugh.

We are looking for funny, well-crafted poems. Most of the time, this will mean work that rhymes and/or scans—but we are also open to comic free verse.
