Poetry

Please submit no more than three poems during a single submission period.

This is our most popular genre so please submit only your best work; fewer than 5% are accepted.

We are not interested in religious, patriotic, or "love conquers all" platitudes. Instead, we want poetry that is thoughtful, brutally revised, fresh, and knows when it is time to end.

Please submit only one poem per file.

A very brief (50 words or fewer) bio should be included with your submission. Place it at the end of your poem(s).
