Your submission should include a cover letter with contact information and a third person bio.

Submit all poems or prose in a single document. While we gladly accept simultaneous submissions, please do not send multiple submissions in the same genre. If submitting in more than one genre, please do so in separate submissions.

Our typical response time is 6 months or less, but can sometimes be longer due to the volume of submissions we receive coupled with balancing real-life demands. We're volunteers, and your patience is appreciated; please also keep in mind that we no longer respond to individual queries.

If you need to withdraw only part of your submission, please notify us via the Notes feature on Submishmash.

We are temporarily closed to flash prose and fiction submissions but will reopen both categories shortly.

No more than 5 poems. Please include all poems in a single file.
