Poetry Space, Winter 2019

Moving into winter now, fallen leaves and early snow. In this edition we feature four poems from writers both new to us, and some not so new.

Given our space constraints, we have a bit of a bias toward shorter poems and cannot make use of photographs, art work, etc. See the guidelines for submission below… We invite all of our readers to submit their work. To submit, simply email your work to [email protected] Please include your poems in the body of the email (no more than 3 poems per submission please), and please include your ... continue
