Poetry

Max pieces: 5

We accept work of almost any genre, but we will not consider rhyme, because it seems to us that all rhyme is for rhyme’s sake (we don’t care why you rhyme, we just don’t want it in Down in the Dirt), and we’re definitely not keen on religion poems (we were originally a section of cc&d magazine, whose byline says it’s an UN-religious magazine). We are also not keen (meaning, it’s best not to send it to us for consideration) poems with repeated or intricate indentations.

  • Additional info

    We have no specific preferences, but we appreciate work that is related to issues such as politics, sexism, society, and the like, but are definitely not limited to such. We publish good work that makes you think, that makes you feel like you’ve lived through a scene instead of merely reading it. After you have sent a submission, please do not send another submission until we have processed and responded to your first submission. Previously published work is fine, as long as you retain the rights to your work (if it was accepted somewhere else, list where so that if it is accepted we can list previous publication credits with your potential acceptance).
