Sirena: Poesía, arte y crítica (Sirena: Poetry, Art and Criticism) is an international and multilingual academic journal founded in 2004 by Jorge R. Sagastume (Dickinson College). After a feature article published in The Chronicle of Higher Education, the Johns Hopkins University Press approached the college to offer the distribution of the journal,[citation needed] and ever since it has been published and distributed by the JHU Press.

Sirena has published in over twenty languages. Every poem appears in its original (if not English or Spanish) with facing translations into English and Spanish. The journal has published poets such as Günter Grass, Günter Kunert, Adrian Mitchell, Clara Janés, Homero Aridjis, and many other renowned poets. The journal publishes critical essays on poetry, art, and translation studies as well as book reviews.

The journal is published biannually in March and October. The average length of an issue is 160 pages.

The current editor is Mark Aldrich.
