At Peeking Cat Poetry Magazine we like poems that tell the truth in some way – poems that dare to be honest about something important, or poems that find something beautiful to say about everyday things.

Poetry isn’t a high-brow art form and it shouldn’t be inaccessible. Poetry is by everyone, for everyone. It is everyday – it is every life. But most of all, it is everywhere, and to see it, you just have to observe – like a peeking cat.

New format

Peeking Cat Poetry Magazine has recently changed format. Previously, we released one issue per month in print and as a PDF. However, we now publish work straight onto the Peeking Cat Poetry website and release a print issue featuring those works on a rolling basis when there is enough work to fill an issue.
