call for submissions: The Redheaded Stepchild
- Submissions Now Open
The Redheaded Stepchild only accepts poems that have been rejected by
other magazines. We publish biannually, and we accept submissions in
the months of August and February only. We do not accept previously
published work. We do, however, accept simultaneous submissions, but
please inform us immediately if your work is accepted somewhere else.
We are open to a wide variety of poetry and hold no allegiance to any
particular style or school. If your poem is currently displayed online
on your blog or website or wherever, please do not send it to us before
taking it down, at least temporarily.
Submit 3-5 poems that have been rejected elsewhere with the names of
the magazines that rejected the poems. We do not want multiple
submissions, so please wait for a response to your first submission
before you submit again. As is standard after publication, rights
revert back to the author, but we request that you credit Redheaded
Stepchild in subsequent republications.
We do not accept email attachments; therefore, in the body of your
email, please include the following:
· a brief bio
· 3-5 poems
· the publication(s) that rejected the poems
Send your submission to <redheadedstepchildmag(at)gmail.com> (replace
(at) with @ in sending e-mail)
