Formatting: Please send us up to three poems in one document totaling five or fewer pages. Poems that contain visuals or art are welcome as long as you own the copyrights. We may accept poems without accepting the art.
Please use fonts like Times New Roman/Calibri/Arial, 12pt., double spaced, 1 inch margins. INCLUDE page numbers and a word count at the top of your manuscript. DO NOT INCLUDE your name/identifiers in your manuscript. If the unique format of your submission is critical to the piece, please feel free to keep your unique formatting.
Submission Deadline: This year’s print issue deadline is 12/1/20. We have rolling submissions open right now. Reading of submissions begins in August every year and runs until the deadline.
Reminders: In addition to these guidelines, please read our General Submission Guidelines. We only consider unpublished work. Please do not submit material previously published in anthologies, chapbooks, online, or on personal websites (including FB, Twitter, Insta, Flickr, blogs, etc.). Simultaneous submissions are encouraged, but let us know immediately if a submission has been accepted elsewhere.
