About

In response to the U.S. Supreme Court's overturning of Roe v. Wade, FlowerSong Press welcomes response poems to SCOTUS's attack on a person’s right to their own bodies. This court decision affects us all, and it would be in deep reverence to the women who came before us and all others who will come after us to engage in this crucial conversation & moment of action. We invite your submission of unpublished poetry and prose for this forthcoming collection. We invite you to share your thoughts, your pain, your anger, your stories, your frustrations.

Voluntary Fees: This project accepts voluntary fees for "tip jar" submissions.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
