OPEN to Submissions

Dear poets,

The submission guidelines have been updated to allow attachments as well as poems within the body of the email. See below for the full guidelines.

In other news, Autumn Sky Poetry DAILY is now host to an online forum! This community will foster poetic critique year round as well as create a space for participants in the April National Poetry Writing Month activities.

While this forum is open to all, poets will need to register in order to participate, and will be subject to Admin approval before becoming a member with posting privileges.

Critique and NaPoWriMo sections are completely private and not viewable to search engines or guests. The Welcome section is visible to guests, but only registered members will be able to post.

happy writing,
Christine, editor
