About

A body is the most genuine thing we have. A body can burst forth into a magic-realist galaxy. A body can be a source of pleasure. Pain can be a muse. Where does psychic pain end and visceral pain begin? When I say sensuality, does that connote pain or pleasure? Writing the body is writing what we know because we inhabit it. Or you might write your lover's body so you can keep it with you. If I say I am holding your hand right now can you feel it? Do you feel it with your brain or your skin? Our bodies can make us feel powerful or defenseless. Taking a risk to write about the body can make you feel powerful. When I wake and put my feet on the floor I feel defenseless. I would like to reclaim the word sensitive to mean risk-taker. We are gods of our own bodies. We are servants to our own bodies. Our bodies are signifiers. Our bodies are false signifiers. Our bodies are liars. Our bodies are truthtellers. If our bodies are oppressed by an outside force, we are "written over." Rogue Agent wants to retaliate. Rogue Agent wants reconciliation. Rogue Agent wants to share your stories about the poem that is the body.

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.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
