How can I improve the likelihood my poetry submission will be accepted?

  1. Read and follow the guidelines carefully: We get a lot of submissions. Our guidelines are there to help us get through them (and back to you) quickly.
  2. Send us more than one poem: Even if we love the poem you sent, it alone might not fit with a theme or gel with the other work accepted for the next issue. If you send us a selection, you give us a better chance of finding a fit.
