The American Poetry Review (APR) is an American poetry magazine printed every other month on tabloid-sized newsprint.

Founded in 1972 by Stephen Berg, APR has always been published from editorial offices in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Berg is one of three editors, along with David Bonanno and Elizabeth Scanlon.

According to the magazine's Web site, it has a circulation of 17,000. It publishes contemporary poetry and prose from a diverse array of authors.


The American Poetry Review was founded by Berg in 1972 in Philadelphia. The magazine lacked capital but had "significant support in the national poetry community", according to the magazine's Web site. By 1976 the publication was being produced and distributed more efficiently, making it "the most widely circulated poetry magazine ever". In 1977 the publication began paying out small salaries to editors and staff and small payments to authors.[1]
