Thanks for your interest in publishing your work with Right Hand Pointing.

This is for submissions for our special issue, January 2020. 

Every poem (or piece of very short fiction) will have as their titles the names of the months. So, we hope to have a piece titled "January" and all the other months. The title must ONLY be the name of a month. No added words, please. A few other things to know:

1. Our usual guidelines apply. https://www.righthandpointing.net/brief-guidelines. Our usual length guidelines apply. For poems, our preference 75 words or less, 16 lines or less. If the number of lines is short, we might go as many as 100 words. If the word count is well under 75, we could take a larger number of lines, but not more than 20 lines. Fiction < 500 words.  We would love a few pieces of calendar-themed art, photography, or short video. Send samples.

2. Submit up to 3 pieces of short fiction and up to 5 poems.

3. We are open to having more than once piece named after a month.

4. The poem/story does not need to be ABOUT the month whose title it has. At the same time, there needs to be something in the piece that is somehow connected to the month. Perhaps the season or the weather. Some event that we all tend to associate with a month. Another way of saying this is that if your piece is titled "February" and the editors pretended the title was "August," we'd want to say, hey, this isn't an August poem. It's a February poem!

5. Deadline: December 15. We may reject some submissions before the deadline, but we won't make final selections until after the deadline.

Thanks,


Your Editors: Dale, Laura, José, John

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. 


Rules:


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. 


Thanks,


The Editors
