want to read your best work! Send us your dark, your gritty, your brave,
irreverent, off-kilter poems from the shadows. Surprise us. Make us love you. Break
our hearts. No rules about length or form—send formal, free, or hybrid verse.
We pay $25 per original poem (previously unpublished). This rate is for poems
up to 50 lines. Longer poems pay somewhat more. Please submit up to FIVE poems
at a time in a single file, and do not send more until you have heard back from
us. Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please be courteous and withdraw
your submission or send an email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
if one or more of your poems finds a home elsewhere before we’ve replied to
your submission. PLEASE REMOVE ALL IDENTIFIERS (name, email, address, phone number,
bio) from your document. We read all submissions blind.
