Aerial (magazine)

"Aerial" magazine is an influential poetry magazine edited by Rod Smith and based in Washington, D.C. that began publication in 1989. The magazine is associated with Edge Books, which began publication in 1989.

The magazine's poems often are featured in The Best American Poetry series. Beginning with Issue 6/7 (John Cage), Aerial has published a series of issues devoted to the work of individual poets within the avant-garde tradition, such as Bruce Andrews, Barrett Watten, and Lyn Hejinian.

"Aerial is focused primarily on the avant garde and the experimental, broadly defined", according to the magazine's Web site. Its poetry is aligned with North American experimentation by groups such as the Black Mountain poets, the New York School, Language poets, the San Francisco Renaissance, and antecedents including John Cage, Gertrude Stein, and William Carlos Williams.

Contributors include Lyn Hejinian, Elaine Equi, Charles Bernstein, A.L. Nielsen, and Ron Silliman.
