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 in the subject line or whatever.

One Sentence Poems is edited by Elizabeth McMunn-Tetangco and Dale Wisely.

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


Your poem must be a true, grammatical sentence. Use correct punctuation and capitalization.

The poem may be titled, or not. But it's the body of the poem that must form a true 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. 

We always appreciate a cover note.

NOTE: We share this Submittable account with Right Hand Pointing. If you got this far, you are submitting to first frost! 

We would love to see your work, particularly if you are an experienced haiku poet.

We have a broad, contemporary view of what constitutes a haiku or senryu. We aren't hostile to 5/7/5, but anticipate publishing poems with fewer syllables. We are open to 1, 2, & 3 lines.

We publish haiku and senyru. We accept submissions from January 1 through February 15 for the May issue and July 15 through August 15 for the November issue.

Our editors intend to notify all submitters of our decision within 4 weeks after the close of a reading period.

Submit once during a reading period--up to 5 haiku or senryu.

Please consider being among our first subscribers. Subscribe at our website at

We read 6 weeks on, 6 weeks off. We're off. We will read for the April '21 issue February 1 through March 15. Please put Feb 1 on your calendar and submit then. Thanks! 

Unbroken is a quarterly online journal that seeks to showcase prose poems, both from established and emerging voices. We desire to give the block, the paragraph, the unlineated prose, a new place to play. Or to crash on the couch for a while after breaking up with a boyfriend or girlfriend. 


We seek prose poems. (We do not publish lined poetry.) Both traditional and innovative works are welcome. We want dark and disquieting, we want fanciful and funny, we want surreal and surprising. We want stunning and unusual imagery, and language that compels.

To get some idea of the kind of content we like, check out current and past issues.

The editors of Unbroken seek prose poems that transcend the boundaries of conventional storytelling.  Of course, we believe that submissions should be coherent and intelligible, but also that coherence can be achieved through style, tone, imagery, and even transgressive methods. Linear narratives with predictable situations and language will be discounted. We want prose that smolders in the ditch. We want it to cry. Maybe laugh at inappropriate times. We want it to knock on our doors in the middle of the night and demand to be let in, fed, given black coffee, and assured that life isn’t completely insane. We want prose poems that have been fired from multiple jobs and have gaps in their resumes which cause them to perspire in interviews. Poems that listened to “Venus in Furs” daily for the entire year of 1993. We want poems that are the perfect carrot cake at your aunt’s house. We want poems that need extensive dental work because of unfortunate incidents outside bars in Phoenix or Indianapolis or Mobile. Finally, we want submission guidelines that don’t read like Dale Wisely got his hands on them.


We read 6 weeks on and 6 weeks off.

In any given reading period, submit up to 3 pieces.

We do final acceptances for each issue shortly after then end of each reading period. Here's our calendar of reading periods.


We do not accept previously published works (including self-publishing and blogs). Simultaneous submissions are okay, but please let us know immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere.


We do not have a rigid word limit, but we tend to favor shorter, punchier pieces. If you send us something that’s more than 500 words, it really needs to knock our socks off.


Cover letters are not essential, but please provide a brief (around 35 words) third-person bio in your email. We reserve the right to edit bios.


Do not supply line breaks. We are looking for blocks of text. Not necessarily opposed to paragraph breaks, but prefer the single block of text.


If your work is accepted, we may fix at our discretion minor grammatical problems. For anything more involved, you will be contacted for clarification. We are unable to provide feedback on work we do not accept.

We know your rights:

If your work is accepted, you agree to give Unbroken Journal first serial electronic rights to your work and nonexclusive electronic and print rights in perpetuity. This means we can archive your work on our website indefinitely and include it in potential future publications and anthologies. Otherwise, all rights revert to the author upon publication.

If you publish the work elsewhere in the future, we ask that credit be given to Unbroken Journal for first publication.

We cannot pay our contributors at this time. We do, however, promote our authors on social media and we usually nominate for The Pushcart and the Best of the Net anthology. Follow us on Twitter for updates @unbrokenjournal

Our August 2020 issue is now filled. As of July 10, 2020, we are reading for our November issue.

What We Want

We’re looking for found writing that first of all adheres to The Center for Media and Social Impact’s Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Poetry. This means you’ve found something within a source text that is a new work, not just borrowed the existing copyrighted material. Think of it like this: remember how when you were a kid you would look up at the sky and pick animals and characters and objects out of the clouds? You didn’t just see the cloud, you saw something new, something no one else had ever seen. That’s what we want. Your found writing should not look like its source text. Beyond that, we want work that shocks us, surprises us, moves us, makes us sigh. We also like it when your work comes from interesting or intriguing sources. And we’re not really into poems that rhyme. We also love visual art pieces. If you can incorporate found writing and art, we would love to see it.

Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal; bad poets deface what they take, and good poets make it into something better, or at least something different. The good poet wields his theft into a whole of feeling which is unique, utterly different from that from which it was torn.~ T. S. Eliot

We do not publish writing that is not found writing.We prefer previously unpublished work, but will consider reprints. Be sure to mention when  you submit if your work is previously published.We do accept simultaneous submissions, just please let us know ASAP if the work is accepted elsewhere.

How to Submit

If you are able, cut and paste the content of your submission (up to 4 pieces) in the box provided. If not, send up to four pieces in one document, with the author name in the document, as well as a title above each piece. Double check to make sure you cite your source text. We’d also like to know your method for crafting your found writing. We consider your method a part of your work, so drop us a note about that, as well. This will be published along with your work.

For art subs, you'll attach files. JPG, GIF, PNG. Do not submit art in PDF form or embedded in Word documents.  Please include a brief (35 words or so), third person bio that will accompany your work. Please do not include live links in your bio.

Payment and Rights

We cannot offer payment to our poets at this time, but we will do our best to promote your work.UnLost acquires worldwide First Serial Electronic Rights and Nonexclusive Archival Electronic Rights, so that we may continue to archive your work. All submissions remain foremost the intellectual property of the author and rights revert to the author upon publication in UnLost. Any future publishers of works that first appear in this venue must credit UnLost for first publication.

Response Time

We aim to respond to submissions within one month. If it has been longer than two months, shoot us an email with “Query” in the subject line.

Upload 2 or 3 pieces. If we like them, we'll ask you to submit a few more.  Please peruse a few of our issues ( to get an idea of what we like. Please don't refer us to a website that has lots of your work. Include samples of your work that you believe would be appropriate to our website.  Thanks!   Dale
