    Please note that our monthly submission limit for poetry is 300. Once we reach that limit, submissions will be closed for the remainder of that month. Our cap is usually reached within a couple days. In recognization of the fact that that is an equity and access issue, we gladly accept submissions from poets who are Black, Indigenous, or People of Color after we hit our cap in the months of October, November, February, and March. A submission category for BIPOC poets only will be available throughout those months after our submission cap has been reached. Provide contributor copies
