The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Black Warrior Review - Poetry (Go to Fiction)

We are looking for poems that play with and interrogate genre, form, and language. Poems that probe our minds—then linger there, festering. Poems whose worlds and voices are filled with intimacy and grip us with surprise. Poems that sing (dis)enchantments and ooze with wonder. Send us your work that resists, redefines, reclaims. We want your decadent poems, your banal poems, your poems that are both at once. We crave all your weird, garbage, sparkly, kitsch.
