Poetry Submissions:
We love poems that make intelligent and clever use of language with attention to sound; poems that touch the heart gently without sentimentality; poems that make us think. Send us your best work.
Please send all poetry submissions to theliterarynest@gmail.com.

Attach one Word document with Poetry Submission in the subject line. Include the author’s name, address, telephone number, and email address at the top of the first page and include a 75-word third-person biography at the end.  If this is a simultaneous submission, please indicate in your submission and if it is accepted elsewhere before we send an acceptance, please let us know immediately.   No revisions to the submitted work are allowed.
