Generally speaking, we seek material covering the Greater Southwest or material written by southwestern writers. Submissions should generally be no more than five poems at a time, and no poems over 100 lines in length. Do not submit a PDF. Please only send us your work as a word document. 

Simultaneous submissions are okay as long as you notify us immediately upon acceptance of your work elsewhere. Manuscripts are read year-round.  Recently published poems have later appeared in collections that have won the National Poetry Series and the PEN/Open Book Award. The journal demands high quality in submitted work, and we strongly suggest reading previous issues for a clear idea of what types of pieces we tend to accept.
