Vol. 14 production is under way!

Thank you so much to everyone who submitted work for consideration in Vol. 14!

We wish we could respond to everyone who submitted (because we know how much time you put into submitting your work—and we appreciate it!), but unfortunately we are unable to respond to those whose poems we haven’t selected for inclusion. If you haven’t heard from us, it means we haven’t chosen your work.

Our submission period will reopen again in the fall.

We are so excited for this issue, and we can’t wait to announce the Vol.14 contributors!
