 Submission Guidelines


Submitting poems can be a painful process, especially when you’re first adjusting to rejection on a daily basis. Imagine getting turned down every day by girls – or boys – in high school. It can feel humiliating, and it doesn’t help that many journals have rather high hopes for your work. This poem was inspired by such hopes. It gets a bit carried away, but then so do the sources it ever-so-gently parodies. (from Gravel)
