We welcome submissions of poetry, short prose, experimental prose, innovative and hybrid (cross-genre) texts, video poems and literary videos. Our submissions window is open year-round although our reading period is usually September 1 through December 1. We publish annually each spring. 

Please send up to ten pages of previously unpublished text, or text with still art (original photographs or drawings) in one document. If text formatting is important to your work, please submit it as a pdf.

Videos should be no longer than 10 minutes. While we like MP4 best, we can accept 3gp, avi, m4v, mov, mp4 or mpg.

Include a brief bio as the cover page of text submission and add your name and email address to each page of your work. Video submissions should include this information (a brief bio, your name and email address) on the Submittable entry form. 

NOTE: Please use Submittable to withdraw any work that has been accepted elsewhere and resubmit any work you'd still like us to consider. We only consider text that has not appeared previously in print or electronic form. Current students at Hofstra University are not eligible to submit work.

Thanks! We look forward to you.

Please submit up to ten pages of previously unpublished (in print or electronic form) text: poetry, short prose, experimental prose, hybrid (cross-genre) text, text with still art (original photographs and drawings), or a combination. We love diversity, encourage innovation and adore work from writers who use language in new and interesting ways. 

If formatting is important to your text, please submit it as a pdf. Otherwise, send us your work as a doc or docx. Please include a cover page (your name, email address and a brief biographical statement) within your doc or docx submission. 

A NOTE: If you are withdrawing some work from consideration but still wish us to consider other pieces in your submission, please resubmit those pieces. Thanks!

Video poems or literary videos should be no longer than ten minutes.  We're especially interested in videos that incorporate text and use motion, image and sound to explore or expand the text rather than merely explaining it. Your video should create an entirely new poetic or literary experience, one that couldn't be duplicated on a printed page.  We prefer new, previously unposted videos.

While we like MP4 best, we can accept 3gp, avi, m4v, mov, mp4, mpg.

Please be sure that your credits include your name, year of production, and source citations, especially for copyrighted material. (Video artists are responsible for obtaining permission to reprint or reproduce copyrighted material.)  

If your video has appeared anywhere else on the Internet (including YouTube or a personal website or blog), please include date(s) and Internet addresses (URLs) of these prior postings.
