Submission Guidelines

Poetry and Visual Submission File Guidelines:

For poets:

Send a maximum of five poems in a .doc or .docx file titled “Poetry _Your Name” (for example — poetry_ JohnSmith) to No PDF files, please. Be sure to include your name in the subject line of the email.

For artists

If sending art, please send up to five high-resolution files  to and include your name somewhere in the email’s title.


Themed and unthemed content is accepted. We have no specific aesthetic but welcome the adventurous and new.

We will not include poems that are racist, sexist, homophobic, classist, ableist, or otherwise intolerant of people. We hope to encourage a diverse readership and inclusive literature.

Simultaneous Submissions:

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please let us know prior to our contact if your work is accepted elsewhere. We do not accept pieces that have been published before.

Previous Submissions:

If you’ve submitted before and have been accepted to our latest issue, please wait a full year before submitting again. If you submitted but were not published in our latest issue you may resubmit for the next issue.

If you’ve been solicited for guest readership or submissions, you may apply to the next submission period.


Sam, Denise, and our guest readers look forward to reading your work.
