First Literary Review - East (FLRev)
YOU WILL BE HAPPY TO KNOW THAT FLREV IS NOW OPEN FOR SUBMISSIONS AFTER A BRIEF HIATUS! SO SEND YOUR STUFF . . .
MISSION STATEMENT: Here at FLRev, we wish to create a warm and safe place for talented poets to showcase their work. Although we need to be selective and want only high-quality work, we believe in the personal touch and, to that end, we hope you will be courteous in your correspondence, as will the editors in replying to your submissions.
Beginning in 2012 (and it's here, folks!), we will be running book reviews on alternate months. We pay $20-$25 per review, and most of them are solicited, but if you are interested in reviewing for us, we are open to suggestions.
Before submitting work to FLRev, PLEASE READ ALL THE GUIDELINES, as follows:
Seeking excellent and exciting poems (free verse, prose, or traditional forms); under 16 lines preferred due to space constraints (we will print longer poems if they are exceptional!) We are aiming for an eclectic mix of topics and styles, so send us love poems, humorous poems, haiku, experimental poems, abstract, etc. Seasonal poems, sent several months in advance, are always welcome. We especially love to feature poets who have never been published before, as well as poets from around the globe.
Blow us away with your poetic prowess!!
Previously published ok (with proper credit). Simultaneous submissions ok (with immediate notification if accepted elsewhere).
Please send 3 short poems in the body of your e-mail (no attachments), with brief bio (please don't ask the editors to pare down your bio -- we don't have time to do that!), to email@example.com.
A cover letter is always nice, addressed to Cindy Hochman, Editor-in-Chief and Karen Neuberg, Associate Editor.
PLEASE PROOFREAD YOUR WORK. Although we will do everything in our power to ensure that your poems are free of spelling errors and typos, it is really the poet’s job to submit work that has been proofed. We are writers – let’s be professional and have respect for the English language.
Please do not submit more than once within a six-month period. We may accept more than one of your poems and publish them over several issues.
A new issue goes up at the beginning of each month (or as close to it as the editors can manage).Response time is from immediately to one month. We look forward to hearing from you.
