Send Us Your Work: Submissions Open Until December 15th
We are looking for poems that perform Olympian feats with language that leave a reader in wonder while still referring back to the basic things that make us human. We want powerful imagery and enjoy the juxtaposition of images in interesting and unexpected ways.
We want poems and stories that make the reader think and feel, work that humbles us with its joy, humor, embarrassment, anger, hope, grief, or all of the above. We gravitate toward exquisitely crafted writing that has something important to teach us--something that readers really need to know, but might not have understood this was a need until the last word of the work.
