Oranges and Sardines Open Submissions

I copied-and-pasted the guidelines:

Poetry Guidelines:
Interested parties should submit 5 to 8 poems for consideration via email to Please do not send attachments or your submission will be deleted. Please do not send in less than five poems or your submission will not be reviewed. Please place your first and last name in the subject line. Submissions sent without your first and last name in the subject line may go unnoticed. No simultaneous submissions please. No submissions or poems that have been previously published. We consider “published” is published. This includes small, private editions, and even poems previously posted on blogs and personal web sites. Allow four to six weeks for your submission to be reviewed by our poetry editors and responded to. If you do not hear from one of our editors by then, feel free to email us again with an inquiry.

Poets selected for the Cover:
Poets selected to be featured on the cover will be asked for other materials including high-end photography and will be interviewed by Grace Cavalieri. The editors will be selecting two poets a year for the cover. The other writers featured in each issue will not be asked for photography starting with the fall issue of 2009.

For more details check it out at:

Good luck to all of you who submit! Please drop in next week for another featured poet on Tuesday…

Great Art cannot be forced in this manner.

I gather there must be a reason for so many specifics. If you check out Literary Mary she explains why the guidelines became stricter and I'm sure those same reasons are applied to Oranges and Sardines.
