About Us

The Raintown Review is one of the longest running print journals with a preference for formal/metrical poetry. Established in 1997 by Harvey Stanbrough, it began as a desktop-published chapbook style journal and has evolved into the perfect bound 100+ page journal of today. Other former editors include Patrick Kanouse and T.S. Kerrigan.
