Submissions: We look for poetry that is not too abstract. We look for simplicity, economy- of words, something that speaks to all of us. The poetry should have layers of meaning, and be strongly situated in the everyday. Send your electronic submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org -- include: 3 to 5 poems, a brief bio, and Poetry Submission in the header. Please put poems in the body of the email--no attachments.
