8-WEST PRESS

There are presently no open calls for submissions.


Poetry: We accept submissions of poetry ranging in length and employing any aesthetic, including free verse, lyric, narrative, prose poems, formal and experimental poetry. General submissions for daily/weekly featured poems are currently open on a ROLLING basis. 


If you are interested in being featured in either of our bi-annual issues (to be partially available online as well as combined in our annual print issue), we are now accepting submissions for our inaugural issue. These poems will resonate with a theme. For information on specific guidelines, please see our Poetry Submission for Issue 1 category.


Art: We are currently seeking artwork to accompany our daily/ weekly featured poems, as well as artwork to be featured for the cover art of each of our online and print issues. We are open to all mediums of visual art, including photography, pencil or pen sketches, paintings and charcoal drawings. We look forward to seeing your work!
