- Send your work of one (1) to six (6) poems. We prefer original work but certainly consider previously published poetry. Be sure to include acknowledgments.
Download a microchap to see how the poems fit on the single-page PDF. The collections range from Haiku length to multi-line fictional efforts.
We prefer work that is not exceedingly dark, depressive, or relentlessly violent and/or abusive. In other words, open the window and give us some air and light by the time we've completed our journey.
- Only original, unpublished poems (as of our publishing) are considered eligible for our Pushcart Prize nominations at the end of the year (closing date for these nominations is December 1st so keep this in mind).
- If we do not publish your submission, take heart and submit in 4-6 months time. Many poets have published many microchaps over the years... feel welcome.
About 4 times a year we send out a newsletter through MailChimp and will let everyone know about the latest microchaps.
