The Skinny Poetry Journal

The Skinny is an online journal devoted exclusively to an 11-line form called the “Skinny,” developed by editor Truth Thomas. The first and eleventh lines can be any length (although shorter lines are favored). The eleventh and last line must be repeated using the same words from the first and opening line (however they can be rearranged). The second, sixth, and tenth lines must be identical. The editor posts poems regularly, on an irregular schedule.
