Poetry Open Fee-based

I’m looking to read poems I wish I had written, poems that make me want to clutch my collar and scream. I pay special attention to poems that force readers to question the meaning of poetry; work that is unafraid of the apocalypse, landfills, Britney Spears, the oceanic sublime, bodily fluids, and dating apps; and writing that reaches us through the ear, mouth, nose as well as the eye.

Visual Art Open Fee-based

We want everyday & unusual art. Art steeped in memory & awareness. Art that's subtle. Art that's loud & kinda punk. That stays out past its curfew & lives a double life. We want art that eats donuts & watches cartoons on Saturday mornings. Art that lives next door. Art whose parents are immigrants. Art that wants forgiveness. Art that's unapologetic. Art that's serious. That's cheeky. That reads the tabloids and paints it nails. Sings Johnny Cash in the shower. Is lowbrow. Pop-surreal. Hyperreal. Abstract. Art that's been hunting with its pappy and is skinning its first squirrel. Art that punched the mean kid back. Art that reminds us of our humanity.

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.
