Tips From the Editor
See the website for guidelines and for examples of the kinds of poems the New Verse News publishes. Then paste your submission and a brief bio in the text of an e-mail (no attachments, please) to nvneditor(at)gmail.com (replace (at) with @). Write “Verse News Submission” in the subject line of your e-mail.
What’s best? A genuinely poetic take on a very current and specific news story or event.
