The Sunflower Collective 2


A blog that celebrates Dilettantism in Poetry and aims at showcasing poets who have not necessarily been trained formally. We plan to share published and unpublished work of poets we like. We dig the Beats and Hungryalist schools of poetry and believe in John Coltrane's philosophy that all good art is introspective and personal and hence, political. Our aim is not to break the system per se. We are just looking for something new,something that does not talk about wine and cheese, and work only within the sphere of established form.

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.
