Red Flag Poetry is a postcard project that aims to deliver poetry to the mailbox of subscribers every month on a postcard. We look for poetry that is creative, original, and well crafted. We want to see poems that criticallly reflect life and force us to feel the weight of the world or your world. 

Please limit each poem to 22 lines maximum with no more than 50 characters per line. These guidelines are somewhat flexible, but keep in mind this has to go on a 4x6 postcard

The Letters Page literary journal is published by the University of Nottingham School of English, and edited by writer in residence, Professor Jon McGregor. We’re interested in exploring what letter writing means to people - and has meant since writing was invented - in their literary cultures and their personal lives. We’ll be publishing essays, memoir, fiction, travelogue, reportage, poetry, criticism, interviews… any creative form of writing, so long as it comes to us framed as a letter.

• The letter should be handwritten on a single side of A4 (or your local equivalent), and sent in the post, with a return address on the back of the envelope. • You may include illustrations. • Enclose contact details on a separate sheet. A transcript may be requested. • The letter should be addressed to a notional ‘reader’ (and should balance the tone of address between the ‘collective’ reader of a journal and the ‘individual’ reader of a forwarded letter); the letter should not address or refer to the editor. • The letter should include some reference to the time/place of its writing and/or sending. • Your submission should be postmarked with a date no later than the stated deadline for submissions.

TAYO cultivates emerging poetry and prose, publishing writing that knifes, lifts, and strikes at the emotive truth of all things lost and adrift. We accept work without regard to ethnicity or nationality* (all are welcomed to submit), and we're looking for pieces that slice into the phantasmagoria of the oppressed, marginalized, post-colonized, and diasporic life. We are an annual print, quarterly online and multimedia platform for storytelling. ISSN PRINT: 2164-0270 ISSN ONLINE: 2164-0289

* We're keeping up our open policy of accepting work without regard to ethnicity/nationality. * Writing that touches on the topics of diaspora, location, identity: intersections of culture/language/sex/gender, movement/immigration; grief, emotion, trauma in relation to the aforementioned topics. * Interesting and vivid language, narrative voice, style, multi-layered, poetics.
