Our Spring 2021 issue will feature a tribute to neurodiversity. Neurodiversity is a concept that respects neurological differences as variations of the human brain and seeks to redefine these variations in a positive way, rather than stigmatizing them. ADHD, Dyslexia, Autistic Spectrum, and Tourette Syndrome fall under the umbrella of neurodiversity, to name a few. For the purpose of this issue, we encourage submissions from people with neurological differences who support, and/or identify with, the idea of neurodiversity. Poems may be written on any subject, in any style or length, but the poet must be a person with neurological differences. Our intention is to highlight a diverse and powerful community of writers that is often marginalized and mischaracterized.
Please submit up to four previously unpublished poems (or pages of short poems) at the same time, but these must be sent as a single submission in ONE document file (preferred), or paste/type the poem(s) into the box provided on the next page. 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.
