We seek poetry that is powerful, sincere, and unafraid to tackle difficult themes and use strong language. We prefer free verse over rhyme, and prioritize work that is not overshadowed by the ego of the poet. No minimum or maximum word count. No rhyming. No pro-religious poetry, critical poems are welcome.
