We are open to all styles of poetry, from formal to free verse. We welcome queer Jewish voices from outside the US, and are willing to consider translations into English.

Both anthologies are open to previously published work, but it is the poet's responsibility to secure permission to reprint the poem. Submission instructions: Title file with the initials of the anthology and author's last name: F-Surname.doc or MH-Surname.doc Include your name, your mailing address, your email address, and a bio WITHIN the .doc file with your essay, as submissions will be separated from emails to be read.
