The journal encourages a blending of communities: young, emerging writers and artists with established voices in contemporary literature. We have encouraged people to write their first poem– including one Arab Spring protester who voiced his contempt of Hosni Mubarak during the Egyptian demonstrations. We seek to tell the hidden story; the darker current we shall ride! We publish variety. We publish honesty. Most of all, we publish YOU. We look for seriousness of the craft. We do not like frivolous verse or verse riddled with cliches. Be original and spark others to seek themselves in your tempest.

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.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
