Ends on January 15, 2018

Our Summer 2018 issue will be dedicated to Athletes. The poems may be any subject or length, but must written by poets who themselves identify as athletes, and have participated in athletics in a serious way. The poems need not be about athletics—our goal is to honor these poets by sharing the diverse creative work that they're producing. 

We no longer publish essays, but will be including a contributor notes section, where poets briefly discuss their experiences as athletes and how it affects their poetry. 

You may submit up to four previously unpublished poems (or pages of short poems) at the same time, but these must be sent as a single submission in ONE document.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