Around the internet is alot of bad poetry, let's be honest. Here is an opportunity to distinguish yourself from the rest. Though there is no cash prize let me remind you that poetry = poverty, we write for the love and not for the funds.

Send me your personal, your academic, your surreal, your sexual, your prose and everything else in between.

Here are things that will get you submissions rejected without consideration.

1. Colored fonts
2. Poems with pictures (if the poem is any good, it will speak on it's own.
3. Center margins
4 Poems with excessively big or small fonts (please use your own reason and be reasonable)

Submit your best and good luck to all
