Our Subscribers are our life force. Seriously…
Without them we can’t do what we do.

We are not underwritten by any institutions, grants or endowments and none of our issues have any ads. It’s by the simple love of our subscribers, the generosity of our friends, and the consistent devotion of our staff of volunteers, that we have produced The Café Review for almost 30 years now (Wow are we starting to feel a little old).

Your subscription buys you four books of poetry a year (because really that’s what we’re sending you, not a “magazine”). That’s $10 for a new book of poetry every couple months! What a steal!!! And since we only run 250 copies of every issue, once they’re gone—they’re gone. Being a subscriber is the best way you can be sure to get your own copy of every issue!

Did You Know...

  • We only do a limited run of 250 copies of each issue.
  • The Café Review is one of the longest continuously running US poetry publications in existence today.
  • The Café Review is the only quarterly published poetry journal in Maine.
  • We have never relied on any ads, grant money, or academic affiliations to create The Café Review. Instead we rely on our subscribers and friends for the funds to produce a publication that highlights what we believe is some of the best poetry and artwork out there today.
  • We do accept donations and we sing hallelujah every time we get one. Our donors and subscribers are the only way we are able to keep doing what we have been doing. Check out our friends section to see a list of the many people whose generosity continue to keep The Café Review printed and possible.
  • Every donation of $50 or more comes with a subscription or subscription extension. You are what makes this magazine possible. Thank you!
  • Our support comes from one source—kind, educated people with a genuine interest in some of the world’s best poetry—people who look to keep the idea of quality small press poetry from extinction. We have always considered the contributors to be an extended family and one with whom we intend to remain in touch. To all our contributors and subscribers we say THANK YOU!!!

We’ve never had anyone leave us an estate before, but hell, I’m sure I can go find a local copy of “Estate planning for Dummies” if I need to. It’ll be my estate planning Bible. On second thought, maybe you should leave the estate planning to the professionals, and if you want to support us, send us a check or click on the link at the top of the page. We also accept cash, but that’s probably not the smartest thing to send through the mail or post. Someday we might get sophisticated enough to accept bitcoin. PayPal might already accept bitcoin, but we’ll just leave that up to PayPal.
