Please submit 3-5 poems that will surprise us, wow us, and make us wish we’d written them ourselves. We are open to form, free verse, prose poems, and experimental styles. Our only criterion is quality. Please send all poems in a single document; do not submit or attach each poem separately.

 All submissions will be considered for the online edition of LAR, and for the best-of print issue set to be released every Spring.

If a poem is accepted elsewhere, please add a note to that effect in your submission. Do not withdraw the entire submission if want us to consider the remaining poems. 

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
