When Gene Doty debuted The Ghazal Page, it was another small, obscure e-zine. Through Gene's leadership and a growing awareness of the form, its popularity took off and has yet to abate. To date, the journal has published nearly 1000 poems, essays, and reviews. Our poets hail from all over the world-- from New Delhi to New York to New Zealand-- and we're proud to feature emerging voices alongside established authors. Holly Jensenserved as editor during most of 2015-2016; Gene's son Matt Warren took over in 2016.


The Ghazal Page community is united by a passion for this seductive, mercurial, mystical form of poetry. We offer not only our archives, but also a library of resources to deepen knowledge of ghazals, Persian poetry, Urdu poetry, Arabic poetry, and our global poetic inheritance.


... to all of our readers, poets, contributors, and associate editors for making The Ghazal Page a success for 15+ years. Join us on Facebook or sign up for our newsletter to stay in touch-- and share the journal with your fellow poetry lovers!
