Tips From the Editor

Submit your work in the body of an email. Include short bio (around 30 words) and the name you want listed. We DO accept previously published work. Two Featured Poems (Publisher's Choice & Editor's Choice) monthly each receive payment of $20.  All contributors receive choice of free pdf or eBook version. We usually respond in 30-60 days. Submit no more than once every 3 months. Submission in more than one category is welcome. We rarely publish long poems. We have a soft spot for limericks and haiku. We aren't prudes, we accept sex, violence or crude language if they are key to a good story, but won't publish anything hateful. We love a good story and a great poem.
