While we are open to style, we’re looking for work that is nuanced, raw, and imagistic with strong elements of the natural world or the human-nature relationship. We tend to favor work that is unexpected, real, evocative, yet subtle, with a strong sense of place and strong imagery. We prefer free-verse poetry and prose that is accessible to readers, is straightforward, and avoids fancy language and doesn’t try too hard to be clever, to rhyme, or to be confined by syllabic or structural constraints—unless haiku, tanka, micropoetry, or similar.
