Welcome! This Submittable account accepts submissions for our family of journals Right Hand Pointing, One Sentence Poems, Unbroken Journal, Unlost Journal, and first frost.  Be sure to select the correct category.

Thanks. If you need anything, email Dale at dalewisely@gmail.com.


Thanks for your interest in publishing your work on One Sentence Poems.  Please note that we share this Submittable site with our mother publication, Right Hand Pointing. So, don't be confused if you get email from us with Right Hand Pointing, or Ambidextrous Bloodhound in the subject line. It's us!

One Sentence Poems is edited by Elizabeth McMunn-Tetangco, Tony Press, Natalie Wolf, and Dale Wisely.

We publish one-sentence poems, one at a time. 

Rules:

  • Your poem must be a true, grammatical sentence. Use correct punctuation and capitalization.
  • The poem may be titled, or not. We prefer a title. It is okay to make the title the beginning of a sentence and the body of the email the end of the sentence. 
  • Start with an uppercase letter. End with a terminal punctuation mark. (But don't die.)
  • Any line format. (2 lines, or many lines. 1 stanza or multiple stanzas. Should be left-justified, however. Some idents ok, but we can't handle highly scattered formats. Include at least one line break.)

Avoid using multiple sentences separated by semi-colons. And really, no semi-colons. We're really looking for sentences and not constructions that strain the meaning of that term. 

We also encourage non-English sentences, accompanied by English translation. If we accept your poem in another language, we will publish the translation with it. We'd love to see more translations.


For a complete submission we'll need:

  • your one-sentence poem(s). You may include up to 4 in a single submission.
  • your brief ONE SENTENCE  bio. If you'd like for us to add a link in your bio, we're glad to do so. The bio should in the 3rd person, one sentence only, and no more than about 35 words. 

NEW! We love our regulars. But please wait one month between submissions.


Thanks,


The Editors

Ends on

d u a l i t y  presents poetry, short fiction, experimental writing, and art inspired by opposing themes, like.

home / away

wave / particle

conceal / reveal

bound / unbound

remember / forget

land/sea

blame/forgive

We encourage broad (and not necessarily literal) responses to the themes.  But, don't make us work too hard trying to figure out what opposing things you are writing about!

Submit 1 to 3 pieces, none longer than 750 words.

We generally do not respond to submissions until after the close of the reading period.

We plan a print edition but reserve the right to do an online edition instead.

Be in touch if you have questions.

Friends,

We will publish a special issue of Right Hand Pointing sometime before the end of 2022, assuming we get enough submissions and accept a minimum of 10 poems. 

We will be publishing collaborative poems. Call, write, visit, or have lunch with a friend.

It most unlikely we will publish more than one renga or other haiku-related works. Sorry!

We'll want at least two authors on the byline. We're relaxing our guidelines a bit: Please, no more than 3 poems. No poem more than 100 words. That's it.

We'll open for submissions on September 1. Deadline October 15.

We will make decisions on what we'll publish by November 7.

Thanks!


Dale
