about

the barnyard serves as a collective blog for livestock editions, a small poetry press. livestock editions was founded in 2006 in boulder with summer stock, a limited run, four issue journal, featuring writing by akilah oliver, anne waldman, reed bye, and many up-and-coming writers who have since become active members of literary communities and contemporary small press publishing. we continue to publish summer stock as an online journal. please visit by clicking on the link above.

our goal is to support talented poets/writers by providing an online journal that features high quality experimental, radical, mindful writing. livestock also produces a handmade poetry chapbook series, offering titles by jennifer rogers and j/j hastain, available on a free exchange/gift economy. the editors scribble over distance from a variety of poetic enclaves: ore, wv, nyc, & mass.
