Silkworm 12 is open for submissions!

Silkworm, the annual review of Florence Poets Society, is open for submissions!
You are invited to submit your poems to be considered for  
Silkworm 12: Surviving, to be published in fall 2019.

Please submit up to 3 poems of no longer than 50 lines each and include a 30-word bio with your submission. Silkworm 12 has an optional theme of surviving. Feel free to interpret the theme in any way, and remember that is it optional. The deadline for submissions is April 1, 2019

Only electronic submissions will be accepted, as an MS Word document attached in an email sent to Members and non-members of Florence Poets Society are encouraged to submit. Please visit our website for more information:

Simultaneous submissions are acceptable so long as you inform us right away if your poem is accepted elsewhere. We claim first American publication rights, with rights reverting to the author after the initial publication period; please give us credit in future publications. We prefer work that has not been previously published.

We look forward to reading your poems!

Silkworm 11: The Eleventh Hour is here!
