Submission Suggestions

Since I’m sure we all wanted to submit more poetry to contests, mags and journals this year (I know I intended to…), I posted a few links to specialized publications that may interest some of you.Here’s one for all the mothers out there. They want pieces about being a mom and all that encompasses

How about an interesting theme: wall scrawls. Solo seeks poems that you would “scrawl on a wall” to tell others This is what we want to tell you about life on Earth! Cave paintings alive with horses and hunters. Standing stones carved with suns and moons. Graffiti in subways. Across thousands of years, thousands of people have recorded:  We were here!  This is what mattered!

And how about this one. Seeking uplifting poetry/prose for a journal for people in waiting rooms at hospitals and doctor’s offices.  Yep, I think that’s pretty noble.  I found the listing on    CAVANKERRY press is seeking gifts of short poetry and prose for the Waiting Room Reader: Stories to Keep You Company, Volume II, a collection of narrative/lyrical pieces designed to help reduce the stress experienced by those waiting for medical care. Focus should be positive and center on life’s gifts or humor and needn’t be related to health or the medical experience. Submit up to 5 pieces, none longer than 1-2 pages (double spaced for prose). Refer to the current edition (, click LaurelBooks, click WRR) for sample themes. Work should be unpublished or if already published, writers whose work is selected will be asked to secure permissions for its use. E-mail submissions only by October 15 to and include WRR in subject line.
