POETRY SUBMISSION

Poets! Climb out the windows, break down the closet doors. Write fire! Write freedom!

WHAT WE WANT:

We want the words of the youth.  We want the words of travelers.  Be outlaw, be jovial, humorous and sexual.  Fire and freedom.    Objective poems written about traveling and being on the road are especially appreciated.  No Allen Ginsberg re-enactments please.

We accept poetry submissions from writers ages 12-25.

Simultaneous submissions are accepted.  We do accept previously published work, but only if it hasn’t been published within the past 6 months.

Please include a short, third person bio.

HOW TO SUBMIT:

[Closed to submissions]

ART SUBMISSION

Artists!  Let’s see the colors you bleed onto canvas, paper, or through computer circuitry.

All submissions must be sent as attachments.  We’re open to pretty much all image files.

WHAT WE WANT:

Anything.  To no surprise, we do prefer art regarding traveling, but we’re open minded, and game for anything.  By “art” we mean paintings, doodles, sketchbook scans, photoshop edits, digital art, broadsides, visual poems, pretty much anything visually appealing that isn’t photography (we address the photo-obsessed below).

Art submissions are accepted from all ages.

Previously published work is okay, as long as you own the rights.

Please include a short, third person bio.

HOW TO SUBMIT:

Include “Art Submission” in the subject line of the email. All submissions should be sent to

poemsfortheroad [at] gmail [dot] com

PHOTOGRAPHY:

For photography, we only publish pictures implying the act of traveling, or of travelers.  This is up to interpretation, but don’t stretch the boundaries too far.

WHAT WE WANT:

As long as the photo regards traveling, we’re open to pretty much anything.  Snapped a cool picture with your phone?  Awesome, send it over.  Have an expensive high quality camera you took dramatic pictures of train hoppers with?  Phenomenal, give them to us. ]

HOW TO SUBMIT: 

Include “Photo Submission” in the subject line of the email. All submissions should be sent to
