For 2019 we are seeking poetry and hybrid prose/poetry collections and collections of short stories or lyric essays. I’d like to see more poems that gather in with “long arms,” to borrow Ellen Bass’ description of Frank X. Gaspar’s work, and more somatic awareness, like Ire’ne Lara Silva’s Blood Sugar Canto.

Please submit only in response to a call for submissions. Please use Submittable.

Representative Authors: 

Jessamyn Smyth, The Inugami Mochi. Ire'ne Lara Silva, Blood Sugar Canto. Jendi Reiter, Two Natures. Stefan Kiesbye, The Staked Plains. Ruth Thompson, Woman With Crows. Don Mitchell, A Red Woman Was Crying.
