  • Our theme for the Summer issue, due out in June, is "Surrender" (see our website for more info).
  • We consider new and previously published work on the theme of healing (emotional, physical, spiritual, community, etc.).
  • Please tell us, if your piece was previously published and you own the rights, where and when it first appeared so we can note that.
  • We allow and encourage simultaneous submissions. 
  • Please use our online submission portal to withdraw submissions. We really appreciate if you do this as soon as you know a submission is no longer available for publication.
  • Send us no more than one poetry submission of 1-3 poems (no more than 5 pages total).
  • We believe a writer should have full control of their work, so all copyright and publication rights remain with the writer at all times. However, we appreciate exclusive publication rights for three months after the issue has been published to ensure maximum impact.
  • Reporting time is approximately one month. If you are a user of Duotrope, we appreciate you reporting your response times.  
  • Contributors receive a free online issue in which their work appears, along with an issue for up to three persons (you'll have to send us their email address), and our deepest appreciation.

We're looking to profile a photographer in each issue whose photos we will use throughout the issue. Send us your work (inspired by the theme but WITHOUT text, quotes, poetry, etc.) and it will appear throughout the select issue. And, there will be a page dedicating to sharing with our readers who you are. Send 15-20 jpeg images, cropped at 4 x 6, 4 x 4 or 5 x 4, all at 200 dpi resolution. Contributors receive a free online issue in which their work appears, along with an issue for up to three persons (you'll have to send us their email address), and our deepest appreciation. Visit our website and see our sample issue to get an idea of what we're looking for.
