Additional Information
We strongly prefer e-mail submissions unless you absolutely do not have e-mail access. The deadline for each years issue is December 1, but submissions are accepted at all times. Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please notify us ASAP if your work is accepted elsewhere. Instead of an attached file, you can paste your poems into the body of an e-mail, but only if they do not require special formatting such as tabs, extensive italics, etc.. Under no circumstances should you send us revisions to a poem that we are still considering. If we accept a poem that you have revised in the meantime, please feel free to let us know when we accept the poem--however, we cannot guarantee we will accept the revisions. If your poem was published in an e-zine, it's previously published. However, if you posted it at an online workshop for critique and revision, the poem is still eligible for submission. Feel free to query us by e-mail on the status of your manuscript if you do not hear from us within three months of submission. We do not return mailed manuscripts. We recycle the paper. Unless we request otherwise, please do not submit more than once per six months.
