Impostor A Poetry Journal 13


Impostor syndrome: the belief that talents and accomplishments are fraudulent or the result of luck. Perhaps you've experienced it yourself—we certainly have! The literary world is rife with lofty and exclusionary definitions of what qualifies the title of "poet." When we decided to create this journal, we knew that first and foremost, we wanted to create a welcoming and encouraging space for writers who may feel intimidated by the established literary world or who feel as if their credentials—or lack thereof—don't fall in line with what's expected. We want your submissions regardless of your history; age, academic background, or the length of your curriculum vitae hold no influence on our view of what constitutes a poet. Your voice matters— we want to hear it!
