The American Poetry Review Open Submissions

I have copied-and-pasted the guidelines below:

The American Poetry Review publishes original poetry, literary criticism, interviews, and essays. Please observe the following guidelines when submitting manuscripts for consideration.
o If possible, manuscripts should be typewritten or computer-printed, on white, 8 ½ ” x 11” paper. Prose should be double-spaced.
o Manuscripts should be addressed to “The Editors” and mailed to APR, 1700 Sansom Street, Suite 800, Philadelphia, PA 19103. Do not send manuscripts by fax or e-mail.
o Please do not send previously published material.
o Each submission must be accompanied by a self-addressed stamped envelope for our reply. (International submissions should be accompanied by Universal Postal Union International Response Coupons.) No reply will be made to unaccepted manuscripts that are not accompanied by a SASE. We will not respond via e-mail.
o Keep a copy of your manuscript and record the date you sent it.
o Our reporting time is approximately three months. We will inform you of our decision. Please do not inquire about the status of your submission unless more than three months have passed.
o Copyright: APR holds first serial rights for material that we publish. The copyright automatically reverts to the author upon publication. We do not require that material be copyrighted prior to submission.
