Ends on October 15, 2018

Our Spring 2019 issue will be dedicated to Persona Poems.  A persona poem, of course, is one where the speaker of the poem is a dramatic character other than the poet.  The poems may be written on any subject, in any style or length, but must be written in the voice of someone else (real or fictional). Please explain what drew you to this persona and/or why you write persona poems in general in your contributor note. 

Please submit up to four previously unpublished poems (or pages of short poems) at the same time, but these must be sent as a single submission in ONE document. Do not include your name or contact information within the file. Do not submit more work in this category until we've replied. 

If you have any questions, see our full guidelines
