Editorial Focus

Two Sylvias Press is an independent press dedicated to publishing the exceptional voices of poets founded in 2010 by poets Kelli Russell Agodon and Annette Spaulding-Convy. They created the popular Weekly Muse to help poets write and publish more poems. You can sign up for their free newsletter (or the Weekly Muse) here:

Tips From the Editor

We err on the side of poets and do not disqualify manuscripts for any reason (typos, too long/too short, etc.). If we have any questions about your manuscript, we will contact you. So don't worry if you submit 2 hours after the deadline or have an error in a poem, we are an easygoing team and poets ourselves, and we care about your work and wellbeing.
