This week we released Poetry Magazine 1.02 -- a revamped version of the app with quicker page-turning, new navigation, and improved typography. To celebrate, the December issue is FREE. It's a great opportunity to check out a beautiful magazine, and an app we're very proud of.
Poetry Magazine is a widely read and world-known publication that's been published continuously for over a hundred years. In May 2013, Poetry Magazine partnered with us at 29th Street Publishing to launch a digital edition of the magazine on our platform. The digital app enhances the reader's experience through expanded content, while maintaining the elegance of the print magazine.
While the freshly revamped and newly released December 2013 issue is completely free to download, past and future issues can be purchased at the Apple Newsstand for just $2.99. For $29.99 per year, iPhone and iPad users can access a digital subscription package that includes everything in the print magazine, the monthly Poetry magazine podcast, a monthly discussion guide, and more.
The December 2013 issue is now available in the app store -- completely free of charge -- and includes new poetry by Ange Mlinko, Louise Glück, Eileen Myles, Alex Dimitrov, Kathleen Ossip, Rebecca Hazelton, and others.
The Poetry Foundation shares our passion for new writing and the craft of publishing, and we are thrilled to continue improving upon the products of our collaboration. Poetry is an intricate art form that demands close attention to every detail -- accentuation and spacing as well as abrupt turns and overlapping words -- designing the digital interface and experience of poetry is a challenge we're committed to.
