4898Fwd: call for submissions: The Weekly Poet blog
- Nov 9, 2009---------- Forwarded message ----------
The Weekly Poet, a new literary blog, is now reading unsolicited submissions of between 3 and 10 poems. We intend to publish weekly. If accepted your poems will be featured on our front page for one week along with an extended bio and interview.
The poems we intend to feature will be "well rounded," which means we pay equal attention to aesthetics as we do meaning. They should be tight. They should sound smooth when read aloud and demonstrate a good understanding of sonics. And they should have a profound theme or meaning which is arrived at through the combined effort of form and diction. Aside from that, we will consider any type of poem, so long as it does not go over 1 page in Microsoft Word in 12-pt Times New Roman with standard margins.
Feel free to submit between 3 and 10 previously unpublished poems to <benjaminckrause(at)gmail.com> (replace (at) with @), attached in a Word document with one poem per page. Cover letter is not required. Please include a bio of up to 100 words, including your publication history (list no more than 5 publications) if applicable and anything interesting about you. Please also put your name in the subject field of your email, along with the words "Submission" and "The Weekly Poet." Simultaneous submissions are fine and dandy; just notify us if a poem you have submitted is accepted elsewhere. No more than one submission per month please. We endeavor to reply to everyone, but if you do not follow these simple guidelines we need not show you that courtesy.
