Autumn Sky Poetry DAILY is on hiatus until December 3, 2021

Autumn Sky Poetry DAILY is going on a month’s hiatus and is CLOSED to submissions until December 3, 2021. Thank you for your patience this year with my many closures. It’s been one of those years.

Despite the many closures, this year was still the best one for brilliant poems and number of views/visits in Autumn Sky Poetry DAILY’s history, stretching back to 2006 (the previous iteration of this poetry journal). Views averaged 5000-7500 per month, with 2500 unique visitors per month. So far this year, Autumn Sky Poetry DAILY has had 44.5K views and 18.2K visitors, topping out the previous best year of 2016’s 42.8K views and 14.8K visitors.

Thank you so much for your support. I truly believe 2022 will be even better!

Dear Poets: Autumn Sky Poetry DAILY has reopened for submissions. Daily poems will resume when I have submissions to post, ideally starting March 1.

Here are the guidelines:

No formal acceptance or rejection (email, paper airplane, aural hallucination) will be sent. Read Autumn Sky Poetry DAILY for one week from the date of your submission and you will find out if your poem was chosen for publication when it either does or doesn’t appear online.

3. Include links to your website, Facebook, Twitter, etc. (please, no bio).

4. Reprints and previously published poems are welcome.

5. Poets retain copyright. Poems remain online indefinitely.
