From the The Midwest Quarterly guidelines:

The Editors will be glad to examine article manuscripts from all who are interested in submitting them. Ideally, these manuscripts should not exceed eighteen double-spaced typed pages in length, should treat subjects of contemporary significance, and should be interesting and readable.

The Midwest Quarterly receives approximately 3,500 - 4,000 poems per year and publishes 60. I am interested in well-crafted poems, traditional or untraditional, that use intense, vivid, concrete and/or surrealistic images to explore the mysterious and surprising interactions of the natural and inner human worlds. If a poem doesn't engage nature in a significant way, I am unlikely to be interested in publishing it.
