What we’re looking for–

  • Lines that demonstrate a keen awareness of how lining opens up meaning.
  • Language that demonstrates an understanding that a poem is a thing, and not a reference to a thing.
  • Mastery of syntax and mechanics.
  • While there are no strict length requirements, the poetry editors prefer to read at least three pages of poetry.

What we’re looking for–

  • Descriptive work with a strong narrative feel, well-drawn characters, and engaging story.
  • We’re open to most genres but we don’t tend to accept horror or science fiction unless it’s extremely well done.
  • Overall, we want well-crafted, solid pieces that move us. The best way to know what we like is to pick up a copy of SKR.
  • We will consider pieces up to 2000 words
