Editorial Focus

Attention to craft is crucial but we are open to all forms/genres of poetry and prose that is believable and thought-provoking, that makes new the expected conventions. We have published work from the U.S., Canada, Ireland, France, Haiti, etc. and are especially happy to publish work by West Virginian and Appalachian writers. Reading Periods are: Nov. 1 - Jan. 31 and May 1 - July 31
