We want to publish the best. That’s pretty subjective, we know. The literary magazine is, let’s face it, a dying art. There’s a lot of good ones, even a few great ones, but most settle for publishing boring, middle of the road work. Comforting, easy poetry. We want poetry that offends us. Poetry that makes us hate or love the speaker. Poetry that challenges the reader. Poetry that makes us want to look away. Poetry that makes us laugh or cry or puke or all three.

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.
