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.
We publish ten-minute plays. We publish one-act plays. We publish reviews. We publish micro-reviews. Query email@example.com or submit via our fiction portal on the submissions page.
For exemplars of what we like, please refer to the following.
