Send us up to five poems per reading period, of any length, all in one file.

We want each issue to feature a diversity of poets, in terms of both identity and style.

We accept and encourage simultaneous submissions.

Don’t send us anything that has already appeared in print or online; we ask for First North American Serial Rights and that you acknowledge Lost Pilots in the event of subsequent publication.

Don’t send us anything racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic, exploitative, toxic, et al.

We will attempt to respond to your submission much quicker than average.

If we have not responded to your sub within two months, it means your poems are still under consideration.

Please submit no more than once per reading period. Please wait at least a year after an acceptance to submit again.
