Yet another last-minute call for poetry submissions from yet another excellent literary journal, Crab Orchard Review. I’m just going to copy-and-paste the instructions from their Submittable page; the closing time is hours away, and my Writing Brain doesn’t do rush jobs (especially not at 12:45 am):
25 Lines in 25 Hours
One Submission per Poet, Up to 3 Poems 25 lines or Less Each Poem
September 30, 2014 (11:00 AM CDT) – October 1, 2014 (noon CDT)
Today (September 30) at 11:00 AM (CDT), Crab Orchard Review is opening a free submission portal through Submittable for poets to send one, two, or three poems of 25 lines or less in one submission (ONLY ONE SUBMISSION PER PERSON). The portal will close 25 hours later on Wednesday, October 1, at noon (CDT). We will let all writers who send work know our decision by Friday, October 3, by 5:00 PM (CDT).
The poems accepted from this call for submissions will appear in Crab Orchard Review, Vol. 20, No. 1, which will be published February 2015. All poetry published in Crab Orchard Review receives $25 per published page (a minimum payment of $50) plus two copies of the issue and a year’s subscription (two issues).
No theme or topic with this; just send the best short poems (unpublished and no more than 25 lines long) that you would like us to consider and respond to you before the week’s end. Not a contest. Free to submit through Submittable.
I say again: good luck!
Now I’m going to bed, consarnit!
