Abyss & Apex - Poetry (Go to Fiction)

Abyss & Apex likes to see strong, emotionally resonant, literary-quality poetry with a clear speculative element (fantasy, science fiction, or surrealism in any combination. Although dark poems are encouraged, we DO NOT publish horror). There are no format or length restrictions for poetry (but try to refrain from epic-length works. We prefer lineated free verse with a limited amount of traditional form poetry with at least 9 lines, or prose poems at least 50 words in length, but we will publish brilliant shorter work.
