Editorial Focus

We prefer poetry and art set in tactile imagery, with a vividness of local detail: characters, places, substantive objects. We shy away from the overtly political or environmental. We like a degree of pathos, subtle drama, a touch of Lorca's 'duende' that loves "ledges and wounds," and a good use of metaphors and similes. We consider all forms of poetry, including prose poems.

Tips From the Editor

TWO submission periods: Jan 1 - 31, and July 1 - 31. Please read the guidelines on our website carefully. Our spring issues are themed. Fall issues are non-themed.
