To new and regular contributors to Free Verse Revolution, the September submissions window is open!
The theme will be Melancholy and it can be interpreted in any way you wish; whether that be loss, loneliness, sorrow or the melancholy found in missing the simple and little things.
I accept poetry and short pieces of prose which interpret the theme of the month in some way, and only one piece from each writer; but you may send up to three pieces for consideration.
Send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
September’s theme: Melancholy
Interpret the theme any way you wish; you do not need to use the word as a title. Pieces may be previously published.
Submission format: poem/short prose should be attached via email as a Word Document or Google Doc. Please refrain from pasting it into the email as this makes formatting very difficult.
Images: if you wish to send an accompanying image with your piece, please attach this separate to the document.
Short bio: if this is your first time submitting work for consideration, include a short biography and relevant links to your work.
There are only twenty available spaces in September so please be aware only the strongest pieces will be accepted and spaces may go very quickly. If your piece is unfortunately rejected this month, please do not hesitate to respond to October’s call for submissions.
I look forward to hearing from you!
