MFA Alum Launches Concision Poetry Journal

Concision Poetry Journal was started in 2021 by MFA alumna Haley Lasché, an experimental poet looking to promote work that excites her. She is particularly interested in the socio-political influences on language and how those topics impact poet's intuitive and instinctual choices on form and structure.

Haley Lasché is the founder and editor of Concision Poetry Journal and co-curates Talking Image Connection (an ekphratic reading series) with Luke Pingel. She has edited poetry for Water~Stone Review and Red Bird Chapbook's Weekly Reads.

Her poems have appeared such places as Landlocked Magazine, Human Repair Kit and Nice Cage. She has two poetry chapbooks: Where It Leads (Red Bird Chapbooks, 2016) and Blood and Survivor (Locofo Chaps, 2017).
