A note on the submission fee:
Although we hate the idea of further burdening penniless poets, we have decided to charge two dollars per submission. Rest assured, the change we'll be collecting (about what you would have spent on postage) will be put to good use. Thanks for understanding. And your money.
Art submissions should be submitted through the new art folder. Please read all guidelines under category. Please include a cover letter.
