How to Submit your Poetry, Art and Creative Writing

1) Complete a license
The Call for Contributions contains the license for all artists and writers to fill out and send in with the submissions. It's also available en Español. NOTE: Submissions will not be processed without a completed license. If you find this form daunting, you are not alone. Please call or email, and we will happily assist you.
2) Print and Label your work
- Print one submission per page on regular paper, 8.5 x 11.
- All writing should fit on one side of one page. If it does not, it is probably too long.
Label the piece of paper with your credit info. Print or type: the title of the piece, the copyright symbol you chose for it (¤ or ©—see the license for more info), your name as you'd like to be credited, and the year the work was created.
Example: Self Portrait © Frida Kahlo 1940
- Do NOT send us original work or expensive prints. They will not be returned.
- To reduce our ecological footprint, please do not send glossy prints, plastic sheet protectors, CDs, or other non-recyclable items. To be uber-eco, email them to us! For instructions on how to submit via email, click HERE!
3) Make a S.A.S.E.
- You will be including a Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope (S.A.S.E.) for notification and for receiving a new Call for Contributions for the next edition.
- Use a legal size envelope.
- Write your own address on it.
- Put a regular postage stamp on it (If you live outside the US, you do not need to include a stamp.)
- We notify all contributors in the Spring to let you know whether or not your work was chosen for publication.
4) Send it on in!
Your package should contain:
- A completed and signed Contributor's License
Photographer and model release forms for photos if required (see Photography, below)
- A self-addressed stamped envelope
