Tips From the Editor
We celebrate Florida's poets and poetry lovers by publishing poetry chapbooks through statewide contests for Florida poets. Manuscripts should be no longer than 24 pages, including title page, table of contents, dedications and acknowledgments. See website for details on each contest.
