About

Autumn Sky Poetry DAILY is OPEN to submissions.

Autumn Sky Poetry DAILY publishes one poem every weekday and sometimes on the weekend.

The editor reserves the right to skip a day here and there, depending on the poems received, the weather, vacation time, and/or electrical interference with her brain.

Sundays will feature reposts of poems that previously appeared in Autumn Sky Poetry (aka from the archives).

Poems are selected on the whim of the editor.

What does the editor like? –> formal poems, free verse, alliteration, metaphor, personification, and all the other things that make poetry an art form.

What does the editor dislike? –> missing articles, non-thoughtful line breaks, tortured meter, clichés, bad sonics, and all the other things that make poetry unpleasant to read.
