Thank you for your patience while we changed from a print magazine to an online one. We hope this will enable us to publish more good writing, and we welcome your submissions from September 1st to May 1st.
We close submissions from May 2 to August 31st in order to catch up on reading.
Send us three to five poems in a single document, please!
We look for well-crafted poems under 61 lines. Poems should be single-spaced indicating stanza breaks.
We are also looking for creative non-fiction and short stories. Just send us one per submission; your manuscript should be no longer than 12 pages, double-spaced.
We accept work via Submittable. Please include a short bio (50 words or so).
We will not be able to read Snail-mail manuscripts, so please do not send us any.
We are happy to accept simultaneous submissions (except in our annual poetry contest), but we do not accept previously published work. If you intend to submit work simultaneously, it would be kind of you to tell us so in your cover letter. Once we have notified you of an acceptance, it will be published as a first time publication. All rights revert back to you, the author, after publication.
We read all submissions, but that process takes time. This is one reason we encourage simultaneous submissions–if your work is snapped up elsewhere by a more efficient magazine, we will be thrilled for you. Just let us know as soon as you know.
If you have questions, please contact us! (That is NOT the address to send poems to, however.)
