Tips From the Editor
While we are not exactly averse to experimental pieces, or those with weird/different constructs, please bear in mind that we are looking for poetic creations that are “simple and chaste in design, properly proclaiming its value by substance alone and not by meretricious ornamentation—as all good things should do.” —O.
