About

When asked what we are looking for in our work, we can simply say, writing that causes that little shiver. We don't have restrictions on form or content, and we are interested in the established to emerging writer. We want to hear from a diverse range of voices and experiences; we want our ideas of a well-crafted poem to move beyond the MFA workshop and into the mettle of life and experience. We want our understanding of the world to expand, leave us silent and struck, lead us in song and in praise. We editors want to be challenged out of our comfort zones. We are looking for the well-written but also, more importantly, the well-lived.

Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for some submissions. They charge fees for some submission periods.

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. Just remember…

  • 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.
