Califragile



Note: if rejected, wait three months before submitting again.

We’ll consider your original poetry on most topics. (We’ll pass on inspirational verse, as well as work we feel is violent, pornographic, or oppressive.) Fitting in with our Califragile theme is a plus, but it’s not required. We seek writing that is spare and economic while showcasing what’s possible with imagery. We tend to prefer modern free verse over classical end rhyming, metered work. But quality walks in on its own. Wake up our eyes with something thrilling and unexpected. Have something to say, whether on the micro or macro level.

Regarding the Califragile theme, we’re not necessarily asking your poetry to save the world or have magical fixes to our ancient collective flaws. We’re more interested in poems that drag the scary questions from the shadows and portrait the truths we need to face. Send us your poems that deepen the dialog.
