We do not consider previously published material. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable with immediate notification of publication.
In order to make space for other voices, we do not publish work from someone more than twice in one year.
We appreciate your work and in return, we want to take the time and attention to fully consider each poem and piece of artwork. Please allow us 3 weeks to review your submission. If you have not heard from us after 3 weeks, please email email@example.com.
We welcome submissions in English, Spanish, Spanglish, Creole, an amalgamation of languages, as well as Indigenous languages. Please provide a translation for our editors to review. Upon acceptance, the poem will be published in its original format or without translation if the poet chooses to do so.
