Calls For Submissions
We will update this page periodically, with current calls for submissions for the different sections. Please check out the section of interest for web-based publications and projects where you will generally find submission guidelines specific to the section.
Please let us know what you are submitting to when you write.
We welcome all- seasoned, emerging, shy, bold.
Rights, Payment, Playing Nice:
“We Dream Of A Bartering Society”: Sadly, we don’t make money and we don’t pay money and even if we made money we would probably print books and ship stuff so we want to be honest about that at all times. We are a volunteer, nonprofit, passion-driven independent small press. We wouldn’t turn down donations or some pennies in the can at a reading, but what goes in goes out.
“This section needs some work.”
We are not particularly concerned with rights, exclusive deals, control, all of that. If you end up submitting a piece to another press later on, it would be cool to let them know or to say it was here, and to honor whatever the press wants you to do. We frown on taking things down after the fact (philosophically, not really with our faces) because we feel that we are putting work into a space and it is put out there- even after work is deleted, it is often cached. It is out there, already being shared, already available. You could share the link. Unless it is like… precious. Or maybe you were slumming and now you are a big shot and want your poem to be in The New Yorker and REALLY need us to take it down.
If you think that you are going to sign some exclusive contract in the future and will need to dismantle your writing trail, maybe you should not submit. Or write new stuff. Or talk to us about it. We are very nice people and will usually try to hook you up with whatever. Unless you are an asshole. Then we are passive aggressive.
