Submission Policy

As of November 2010, I have started to seek submissions for new, unpublished poems.  I strive to feature one new poem per month in the "New Voices" section, and then those will poems get archived along with the other poetry, after being featured as the "poem of the day" for one day.

In 2019, I will continue to consider #metoo works, but I also want to become another rapid response poetic venue, similar to the one over at Rattle. In this day and age we are inundated with news stories and I want to elevate the voices of poets who are responding in the moment using their craft to the news.  Priority will be given to women, queer, and nonwhite voices in poetry so please identify yourself as such if you are a member of a marginalized group.  

Send your work to dubrows (at) gmail (dot) com.PLEASE PUT IN THE SUBJECT LINE "TOPIC: XXX"  and feel free to submit to any of the themes that move you.

Please review your work before submitting it for basic spelling and typos. I prefer submissions in the body of the email, but attachments are OK if they are in Microsoft Word form. Previously published poems are also OK, with an eye for poems that have been previously published in now-defunct journals.

All rights revert back to you but please attribute this blog as the first publication if you re-publish it somewhere else. Simultaneous submissions are OK.
