Currently, Lines + Stars is closed for general poetry and fiction submissions. We will open a call for submissions to our next themed issue at the end of the summer.
Seasonally, we gather at a venue in Washington, DC, or Baltimore, MD, to hear the work of three local writers. If you'd like to be considered as a participant -- and are a resident of DC, Maryland, or Virginia -- submit 3-4 poems or an 800-1,000 word story excerpt, along with a bio, here.

We welcome short (800-1000 word) reviews of new poetry collections -- particularly those published by small presses. We ask that you send a separate query to before submitting here.
