Submissions Open!! Deadline: January 31, 2017
shufPoetry is now open for submissions!
Browse through our issues and take a look at the kinds of things we like. While we do publish really good conventional poetry we love visual, textual, artful, experimental kinds of work.
We ask that the poems, audio files, or video clips be previously unpublished. We are unable to pay for work accepted (barring the feature), but we do accept simultaneous submissions as long as you promise (pinky swear!) to notify us if the work is accepted somewhere else.
Please include a short bio and little info (a brief artist statement) about your poem(s) in the comments field.
When possible, use the most common file extension as you can (i.e. .doc rather than .docx). If we cannot open the file we will not be able to look, read, listen, salivate, nor dance wildly to your poem.
We reserve rights for first publication online, after that all rights revert to individual authors.
And loyal readers if we have already published you, please wait two submission cycles before sending us more work.
We love good poetry, but we love love love experimentation, more. Those good poems must push the envelope in some kind of way--be it through an unusual style, medium, use of language or presentation--or we are not likely to publish the work.
