When asked what we are looking for in our work, we can simply say, writing that causes that little shiver.  We don't have restrictions on form or content, and we are interested in the established to emerging writer.  If the work is good, it speaks for itself; we don't need a cover letter, though they are welcome.  (If you do opt to include a bio in your cover letter, please keep it to 100 words or fewer.)

We thank you for trusting us with your work.  One of the luckiest things is finding the amazing and unknown within these submission pages.

A few specifics--

:: Our categories include:  poetry, lyric/hybrid, and conversations/essays.  While we are a poetry-specific journal, we seek to expand the definition of poetry.

:: We regret we cannot pay contributors at this time, but we do nominate for Pushcart Prizes, Best New Poets, and Best of the Net.  We are proud of our contributors, and seek to help promote your work.

:: We only accept general submissions through Submittable.  We encourage you to query via email in unique circumstances.

:: Please include all poems in one file.  It keeps costs down.  Please also refrain from putting more than one poem to a page.  

:: We do accept simultaneous submissions.  Please notify us immediately if your submission has been accepted elsewhere.

:: We do not accept previously published work.

:: We do not accept multiple submissions.  Please wait to hear from us about your active submission before you submit again.

:: We hope to respond to your submission within two months--sooner!--though the ebb and flow of our inbox will cause variation.  Please feel free to query if we take longer.
