River City Poetry is an online poetry magazine based in Wichita, Kansas.  Published twice a year, our Spring and Fall issues showcase selections from ten featured poets both regional and from around the country.  We celebrate community, collaboration, and the intersectionality of our modern world.  We believe there should be more spaces and places that celebrate poetry.

We are Proud to announce that the Spring 2019 Issue is now available.

Chapbook reviews are updated regularly.  Please visit our page and menu to see the latest reviews from our panel.

Our Fall 2018 Issue is now available!

Visit our Spring 2018 Issue  or our Fall Issue 2017.

Fall Issue 2017 is now available in our PDF Archive!

Our Summer Sampler 2017 is also also available through our archive and worth a visit.
