This includes poetry which is both challenging and accessible; women’s writing; Great Lakes/Northeast literature; the immigrant experience; science fiction poetry; Jewish literature; and poetry in translation.

We ONLY accept unsolicited submissions during our open periods, which are generally in summer but not every year. Please watch our Submissions page for open periods, and then submit using Submishmash, our online submissions program. Please do not submit except during open periods.

We do not accept hard-copy or email submissions, although email queries are fine.
