Today, as I put the stamps on most of the very popular Issue 17s fixing to be mailed, we’re open to submissions again. The details, which can be found on our submissions page , are basically this: paste up to five of your best poems and/or the best story you’ve got under 3,000 words into the body of an email, along with a short third person bio, and click send. We’d also love to receive submissions of cover art, if you’re a talented photographer who works in black and white.
We’ve also got a contest. as always, and the theme is fathers. Do with the theme what you will. Happy, sad, mournful, emo, how much he loves you, how much you hate him. Write a poem about the Founding Fathers. Hell, write a story about my dad (oh, and if you find him, mention that in the email, would you?). Just make it good. $20 to best poem, $20 to best story. The deadline and submission guidelines are the same as for general submissions, but also mention you want your work considered for the contest.
Oh, and while I’ve still got some left, buy Issue 17. Better yet. get a subscription for $12 and save on shipping.
That’s all I got. Good luck to everyone!

That’s so funny! I just wrote a poem titled Fathers, and of course, it’s about fathers with James Dean as the central focus or the thread that pulls it together. Sarah Moran just accepted it for Yellow Chair’s pop culture editon!
Can’t wait to receive issue 17! And I hope you’re feeling better! Nancy
