Send us beautiful language.
We’re looking for poetry that plumbs the strange and beautiful, surprises us with new perspectives of what language does, and overwhelms us with duende. Traditional form or wildly experimental, blank verse or free, we want you to woo us within an inch of our lives.
We aim to publish the best writing from the Delmarva Peninsula and beyond. We are interested in local and regional perspectives on climate change and its impacts and intersections. We are interested in queer, and BIPOC voices. We are interested in reading translated work from around the globe. These days we prefer CNF, short dialogue-driven fiction. We enjoy speculative fiction. We enjoy the absurd.
We publish reviews. We publish micro-reviews. Query firstname.lastname@example.org or submit via our portal on the submissions page.
For exemplars of what we like, please refer to the following.
