Clearly state “(ISSUE – year) and Submission” in your subject line. This is a labor of love for the editors, outside of our regular day jobs, personal writing, and other family and community obligations. We do our best to reply to all submissions, and publication notices for the upcoming journal will be sent generally within six months (before the next publication cycle, which typically happens on the Winter and Summer Solstices). If you do not hear back from us within that time frame, please feel free to drop us a “follow-up” email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We welcome you to submit again, even if we do not use your work for our current issue.

I am excited about your blog/site. I will get together for some poetry submissions!
NOTE from the EDITOR: Literary, art, film, play, and music reviews should also be submitted in Microsoft Word, 12 pt, no more than 900 words.
I enjoyed Jessica’s reading yesterday at Full Circle and connecting Robert’s physical presence with Facebook iidentity.
Hurray for poetry editors’
