Our staff is interested in poems that blur contemporary styles with traditional modes, poems that light up with raw energy but point in a specific direction, and poems that push through leaps of image and gesture but resound with a strong emotional core. Above all, we enjoy poems that are willing to take risks while maintaining clarity of expression.
Send up to 4 poems at a time or 8 pages maximum. If you have a single long poem that exceeds 8 pages, we welcome you to submit it as an exception to the page-limit rule and as the totality of your submission for that issue. Please submit all of your poems in one document.
Do not put your name or any identifying information anywhere on your submission.
If you have poetry accepted elsewhere, please add a note to your submission to let us know which must be withdrawn from consideration. Do not withdraw the entire submission if some poems are still available.
