About

Distributed internationally with subscribers in over twenty countries, each issue includes 32 shorter poems, most of them under a page in length. This minimalist focus has fostered an intimate, unhurried reading experience since 2002, when Deborah Ager and John Poch founded the journal as an alternative to larger, less-selective, and more diffuse literary magazines.

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. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • 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.
