Description: Brand-new, fun-loving magazine looking for skillful works of poetry, reviews, and other short writing. We appreciate humor but look for well-crafted work most of all.
Editor(s): Johanne LePage (Poetry Editor), Jeff Mckay (Art Editor)
Address: P. O. Box 453
Newport, ME 04953
Rights: One-time rights. We will accept previously published work but let us know beforehand if the work has appeared somewhere else so we can give proper credit to the previous publication.
Needs: We publish mainly poetry but will consider anything thought-provoking and well-crafted, including essays, poetry reviews (of published collections), and short fiction as long as it is lofty (and very very short). As far as poetry, the editor has no particular preference, though it should be noted that if the poetry does rhyme, it should be part of a form and not simply greeting card verse or limericks. Free verse must be conceptually strong.
Length: seven pages or less in 12-point font
Art/Photo Needs: Black and white images only for the time being. We like striking images of any style, without venturing into the realm of filth. We prefer to receive art submissions via postal mail. Send with SASE and a written explanation of the work. Do not sent your only copy. Submissions will not be returned.
Payment: We pay one contributor's copy and the occasional book or other miscellaneous free item.
How to Submit: We accept submissions only through postal mail.
