A published work should have already gone through a juried process — that is, should have been selected by an editor of a journal or anthology. Please include the place and date of first publication. A translation must be from a known author’s poem that has appeared in printed form. Please include the original poem and poet’s name along with the English version and translating poet’s name. Translators are responsible for all legal requirements such as copyright. Self-published items must be submitted in the normal way and will go through the selection process.
