Please submit outwardly directed poetry that exhibits social, political, geographical, historical or spiritual awareness. We are open to traditional and experimental forms. Above all, we are interested in great poetry that moves us.

  • We do not accept previously published work.                                           

  • Poetry submissions should be typed, single-spaced, and include page numbers. Italicize or underline words to be italicized. Note that bold-faced type cannot be reproduced. With rare exceptions, we do not double-space poems.

  • Submit a maximum of five poems per issue for our consideration.                              

  • Include a cover letter with your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, and brief (one-paragraph) bio.
