Autumn Sky Poetry DAILY is OPEN to submissions.

1. You published my poem but it has a typo/error/glaring hideous mistake! What do I do?

Easy: send me an email and I’ll fix it.

2. You published my poem and tagged it as free verse, but it’s actually a formal poem.

Send me an email and I’ll re-tag the poem correctly.

3. This is supposed to be a daily, but there is no poem today? What happened?

It’s the weekend, I’m on vacation, or no good poems crossed my email desk. I won’t post a poem unless I receive something worth sharing.

4. Why no cover letter? Why no bio?

Who you are doesn’t matter. If you write a great poem, I will publish it.

5. No formal acceptance? Are you kidding me? That’s so rude.

It may be rude, but it will greatly simplify my life and make running a daily poetry journal possible. If I had to reply to every submission I received, I’d probably lock myself in a closet and cry until I passed out.

6. You published someone’s art and this is a poetry daily! What gives?

Every once in a while I’m going to veer to the side and publish artwork. I do not accept art submissions. However, if I happen across something beautiful, I may contact you for permission to publish your work.

7. There are typos/errors/glaring grammar mistakes on your website!

Please send me an email and I’ll fix it.

8. How much does it cost to run this thing?

Around $30 USD a year for the website domain and various other things.

9. The ads that pop up under the poems are terrible. Why are they there?

Because I didn’t feel like paying to get rid of them. If enough readers dislike the ads, I will happily cough up the $30 a year to remove them.

10. Why aren’t you paying poets for their poems?

If only money grew on trees and readers actually paid for poems, oh what a wonderful world that would be!

11. You are an evil, terrible, sarcastic person! What makes you think you can be an editor?

As my kid would say: “Because, reasons.” Seriously, if you want to be an editor, you too can create an online journal and solicit submissions. My motto: if I’m going to complain that I can do something better, I’d better go out and do that something.
