In the prose poetry anthology "Models of the Universe," co-editor David Young writes that the prose poem is "...a little world made out of everyday materials, unpredictable in its contours and wonderfully satisfying in its paradoxical way of combining suggestiveness and completeness." 

For our summer issue, we're seeking prose poems, no more than 200 words in length, that focus on the body and its challenges, strangeness, failings, joys, and revelations.

Deadline: May 15, 2020. 

Please place all of your poems in the same document; do not submit more than once.

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.
