I visited the grave of Rimbaud.
It was pale blue like the blood
of a baby penguin.

We’re on the hunt for excellent book reviewers for this Issue #3, as well as book reviewers we can add to our roaster of regular contributors.
Our goal is to regularly post book reviews on our blog and, with each issue, publish a handful of really exciting reviews.
To review books you don’t necessarily need any experience but your review must be well written and require little or no editing.
this accepts reviews of recently published fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels, films, online or print journals, music, and young adult novels. If you’re uncertain if a review fits, send it our way and we’ll let you know. Queries about reviews of soon to be published books are welcomed.
Submitting poems to literary journals but having no luck getting published? Check out this print journal ranking for poetry submissions. It ranks all the literary journals that publish poetry by number of submissions, number of publications, previous publications of poets and gives an overall score that represents the difficult level of getting published. Unfortunately, the site does not rank fiction. (If you know of a site that does, contact us.)
this is currently open for submissions.
We are looking for work by women writers in the following categories:
–book, film, or music reviews
Submissions do not have to be about women per se, but we are looking for strong writing from a women’s point of view and we expect that our writers will tailor their work with this in mind.
For more specific details on how to get your work included in this, read our submission guidelines.
