Submission Guidelines

Wend submissions are currently closed. Please check back toward the end of summer 2019 for submissions to Issue 2.

Document Guidelines:

Send a maximum of 5 poems or individual art pieces in a .doc or .docx file (poetry) or a .jpg file (art/photography) to wendpoetry@gmail.com with the subject “Poetry Submission — Last Name” or “Art Submission — Last name”.

Content:

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.
