Comparison of online and print
The AgD web site features graphics and poetry texts, including the up-to-date partial-content of any issue still open for submissions, as well as the full content of the closed issues—as an expanding permanent web installation. Agnieszka's Dowry print version, mirroring strictly the online textual content, appears as a chapbook series. This is why both versions share the same ISSN and formally differ only through the assigned unique ISBN designating each chapbook.
In print, Agnieszka's Dowry content appears as alphabetized-by-author texts, while online the poems are grouped and sequenced for contextual effects and deliberately engineered interplay. Graphically, however, the online issues organize their content as hypertext in a series of circularly linked poems lodged in rooms. All the rooms are directly accessible from the magazine's front page, in addition to being accessible via other hypertext links involving A Small Garlic Press's online catalog of chapbooks. Within the rooms, the links to individual texts are obscured and represented by art and graphics, yet once reading any one text, the navigation is made explicit to the user and made regular immediately below each text, allowing for rapid, predictable browsing. Despite the deliberate obfuscation with rich graphics on room entry, the online issue is optimized for textual browsing using the Lynx web browser, in fact, in a way that does not involve the use of the mouse or the tab to navigate through the content, just the spacebar and carriage return/enter. The online version strives to be user agent-neutral. These design and use dichotomies (rich graphical content vs. a textual browsing-optimized web installation; a permanent online installation vs. paper chapbook publication) are maintained consistently throughout.
As of 2009, Agnieszka's Dowry has appeared in 14 online issues and 13 printed issues and chapbooks. Issue 14 remains partly populated, remaining open for additional submissions, and Issues 2 and 3 were combined as one paper volume. The online version is freely accessible.
The arbitrary pace of expanding, never contracting, of Agnieszka's Dowry, is underscored by the 2002 date of the Issue 14 timestamps. There are two kinds of timestamps used throughout the Agnieszka's Dowry website. The earliest one and once written, never changed, is the Created at timestamp. Its integrity is enforced unconditionally and demanded by Library of Congress, as condition of assigning an ISSN common to both versions. The other timestamp, a more everyday, familiar mechanism, is the Updated last tag. It will reflect the last edit done by a human. It, too, is enforced, but only through the anarchy and self-moderation of its maintainers, So far, its maintainers have been, working together or alone, LeeAnn Heringer and Marek Lugowski. Credit for maintenance, design, and implementation is given explicitly throughout the online installation. The entire crediting mechanism, be it authors, maintainers, editors, administrators, or any other future conceivable complication, are always specifically and lucidly presented on the very page. This design has not changed, has resisted pressure for updating, and remains the same, since conceived by Heringer and Lugowski. The timiestamps are maintained only by hand.[clarification needed]
Idiosyncratic submissions sought
An idiosyncratic type of submission sought is the occasional Letter to Agnieszka, which apart from embodying a form of poetic or short prose expression in well-crafted letter form indirectly conjures or invents Agnieszka. Another idiosyncratic albeit infrequent type of submission is tendering a well-known classic poem followed by the submitter's new original text, offered as juxtaposition. Accepted instances include a brief take-off on Christina Rossetti's long poem "Goblin Market" (the complete text is of course included), a free-verse meditation dovetailing with the "Holy Sonnet XIV" by John Donne, and an English-language invention on Catullus' erotic poem "Number 51" (submitted in the original Latin), itself inspired by Sappho's Ancient Greek (Aeolic) fragment Sappho 31.
A more frequent idiosyncratic installation is that of several poems presented as a sequence. Among such sequences, there is one Letter to Agnieszka comprising a series of letters, as well as sequences of contemporary English language haiku written by North American haikuists (the entire Issue 12, and elsewhere). Singularly, a technical essay "Forms in English Haiku" by the late Japanese and American haikuist Keiko Imaoka is featured in Issue 5. Her own haiku sequence, "Super K-mart", is lodged in Agnieszka's Dowry Issue 1.
Editors and contributors
