We are currently open for submissions of New Writing, Essays, Book Reviews, and Feature Projects. Please read the guidelines carefully before submitting. We encourage you to read through the work we have published before submitting.

New Writing

Please send no more than 10 pages of previously unpublished work and an aesthetic statement of purpose. Because each publication is accompanied by an editorial introduction, it is important that your editor has an understanding of your work and your purpose, which can then be communicated to our readers.

We typically respond within 3 months. Simultaneous submissions are fine as long as you notify us promptly if your work has been accepted elsewhere. Submissions are currently open during February 2016.

To submit, send your submission with aesthetic statement of purpose here.


We are looking for pertinent, engaging, and well-researched essays on poetry and related topics. We are looking for essays of 2000-4000 words, though length is secondary to quality.

To submit, send a cover letter and abstract here.

Book Reviews

Our current book review series features rotating resident poet-reviewers producing weekly reviews over the course of one month. If you are interested in holding this residency in the future, please send us a short bio, list of previously published reviews and essays (or links, if available), and a short (1-2 paragraph) description of why you are interested in contributing to this review series here.

Feature Projects

We are always open to other projects that, while not fitting the above categories, deserve to be presented. This could include an interview, visual art, photography, video pieces, audio recordings of poetry readings or obscure folk music festivals, or anything else you can dream up.

To submit a special project, please send an introduction with an abstract or query explaining the project here.
