Editor Interview: Unique Poetry

Q: Describe what you publish in 25 characters or less.

A: We tell untold stories

Q: What other current publications (or publishers) do you admire most?

A: Ghost Heart Journal

Q: If you publish writing, who are your favorite writers? If you publish art, who are your favorite artists?

A: We are a strong advocate for ending the stigma of mental illness. We believe that each of us has an untold story, and we owe it to each other, to listen.

Q: What sets your publication apart from others that publish similar material?

A: All of our Poets are ”Featured Poets.” No one is above or below each other. Our writers are equally unique. We take great honor in treating each piece in its unique way.

Q: What is the best advice you can give people who are considering submitting work to your publication?

A: Be creative!
Push boundaries!
Please follow our submission guidelines. If you have any questions, email the team before you send your final work.

Q: Describe the ideal submission.

A: One that leaves me with any emotion or every emotion. We want to see you.

Q: What do submitters most often get wrong about your submissions process?

A: I think it's often overlooked, but we love Bios. That's another part of your story for us to enjoy.

Q: How much do you want to know about the person submitting to you?

A: A bio, is perfect!

Q: If you publish writing, how much of a piece do you read before making the decision to reject it?

A: All of our Editors read every submission from beginning to end.

Q: What is a day in the life of an editor like for you?

A: Each submission that comes in is forwarded to each editor. We spend time with the poem, and feedback is given, and the decision is made within seven days. There's no need to keep poetry in piles; we want to get your voice out there just as much as you do!

Q: How important do you feel it is for publishers to embrace modern technologies?

A: Quality over Quantity. We keep it simple.

Q: How much do you edit an accepted piece prior to publication?

A: There is some obvious proofreading involved, but we aren't here to change your poetry. If you are rejected, and you would like feedback, we are always open to that.

Q: Do you nominate work you've published for any national or international awards?

A: Not at this moment, we are looking forward to doing that in the future.
