From the Palettes & Quills guidelines:

We look for well-crafted poetry in any style and on any subject. We expect poems who use rhymed and metered verse or traditional forms of any kind to be highly knowledgeable and skilled in their chosen style. Syllabic or free-verse poetry is expected to skillfully use poetic devices and to have both sound and imagistic appeal. Please note that no poetry or poetry-related manuscripts will be returned, so keep a copy of the original. Also, please note that email submissions are preferred and may be sent to Due to space limitations and visual aesthetics, we generally only accept shorter poems of 30 lines or less.

Please submit poems in groups of three to five poems as a single Word, rich text, or doc. attachment . Each poem should be on a separate page within your attachment. Please use a 12 pt. font in a standard style (Garamond, Arial, or Times New Roman). Make certain you your name, snail mail address, telephone, and email address appear on each poem. Previously published poems are acceptable as long as you have reproduction rights and provide proper acknowledgement.
