Editorial Focus

We love a strong sense of line and imagery. We love narratives and a strongly-linked series. When we read, we are drawn to poems about nature and science imagery, persona and historical poems, magical realism, and poems about or by minorities in all sense of the word.  If the poems don’t reveal a strong voice, we are not interested. As far as form, we prefer free verse but love a few form poems thrown in. Prose poems and poems a few pages long are also interesting to our ears. For flash, it is not much different.
