Editorial Focus

Tips From the Editor

We like smart, snappy lines and delightful twists get our attention. We like well-shaped contemporary verse with deft use of images, unusual metaphors, and fine attention to detail. Most subjects are fair game; we will also consider science fiction, fantasy, and horror. We tend to dislike overt sentiment, breakup poetry, pieces more suited to live performance, political rants, pornography, and derogatory work. Rhyming poetry is a hard sell unless done well. We also consider forms. Push the envelope, but be tasteful about it. Do not submit if you are not open to the occasional edit.
