About

VIRGA

noun | vir·ga |\ˈvər-gə\

: streaks in the sky suggesting rain, wisps of precipitation that evaporate before reaching the ground.

Virga is rain that takes some cloud down with it–precipitation with parachute.

Virga is also a poetry journal. Here, we hope to publish poems that take some of the sky down to the page.

Our tastes are eclectic, but we would like to see poems that demonstrate elegance, empathy, and experimentation. This is to say, we want content that is well-crafted, that pays reverent attention to detail; content that keeps humanity at its center; content that innovates.
