Happy New Year!
We’ve had something odd happening with many of our poetry submissions lately and we’d like to correct it. A lot of poetry submissions are being sent to the nonfiction editor for some unknown reason. Some are also being sent to the fiction editor. In our opinion, this is a sign of someone who’s not very professional, someone who doesn’t take submissions seriously enough to do so correctly. Therefore their submissions shouldn’t be taken seriously. Frankly, nearly all of the submissions sent to the wrong editors are pretty bad. So maybe it’s not too surprising. But as of this year, we’re enacting a new policy. All poetry submissions should be sent to the poetry editor at email@example.com. Submissions sent to other editors will be deleted unread. This goes for all submissions sent to other editors. When you submit your work, you show your professionalism, or lack thereof, in following guidelines. Do the right thing. Follow standard procedures and submit to the correct editor. Thanks.
