Glintmoon: Now Seeking Submissions

A brand-new online journal of short poetry—ten lines or fewer—Glintmoon casts a big spotlight on micro verse. They aim to showcase a broad spectrum of voices, and they’re especially interested in work that presents race, gender, sexuality, identity, and disability in a unique light. They’re looking for unexpected, unapologetic poems that redefine micro poetry. They want vital, meaningful, relevant verse.

Glintmoon is published four times a year online: in February, May, August, and November. They pay $5 for every poem they publish.

Glintmoon is just getting started, so right now they’re seeking submissions for their first issue. They accept submissions year-round, and they read on a rolling basis. They respond quickly, within two weeks.

Poets may submit up to five poems, ten lines or fewer each, along with a bio. Glintmoon accepts all forms and styles of short poetry; however, they don’t usually publish traditional forms such as haiku and tanka, and they usually don’t publish rhymed or metered verse. Submitting poets should wait for a response before sending more work.

Glintmoon accepts submissions via email, not online or by post. They accept simultaneous submissions. They do not accept previously published work, including work published on personal websites and blogs.
