Introduction

In lieu of poe-jams and coffee shop workshops, we’ve created an online space for the celebration of great poetry. We don’t have a type. Send us your beautiful, send us your raw, send us your quirky, send us your best. ​In the words of a great professor: “Poetry should be a movie you can taste and smell.” We want images and emotion. We want poetry that sticks with us and makes us think and feel. Since we started this in 2020, we've received so many amazing submissions that both did and didn't make it into the magazine, and every one of them has stuck with us. We thank you all endlessly for your support, and hope that you'll consider submitting during our open reading periods!

Vibe

Send us your best but less intimidating
