    1. We only accept previously unpublished work. any publication that is not password protected such as personal blog or social media is considered publication and would not be acceptable.

  1. Hello.

    Greetings for the day!

    With due respect, I would like to express my deep interest in sending my work. I wanted to know if rhyming poems from International poets are considered.

    Thank you.

    Warm Regards

    1. We are happy to accept any poetry form and we are particularly interested in international submissions as long as the submission is in English. Thank you for your interest. We look forward to reading your work.
