December 2017 News:
Precious Okoyomon is guest editing the site, reading all submissions sent in December (for publication in March)! Send her your good stuff!!
What we want:
We want poetry from the margins—words that open new space without closing off recurring possibilities. There's no one type of poem that we prefer of the other, although we're interested in poetry that doesn't necessarily know it's poetry: work that the uncareful reader might mistake for prose. Send us your barroom promises, your church pew utterances, your missives from that broken place between language and experience. We are looking to be moved by the beauty in what is common.
Also, we like poems about dogs, possums, and ugly babies.
How we want it:
Send us 3 to 5ish previously unpublished poems in a single document along with a brief cover letter.
