Please send 1 – 5 unpublished poems, with each poem exceeding no more than a single page, in a .doc or .docx format. No .pdfs please! Poems should follow the general submission guidelines, as well as being single spaced and using a standard font. Please note that your formatting may be changed to match Goat’s Milk formatting and to work in our digital format. We strongly suggest against submitting any work that relies on unique or specific spacing structures, as we are unable to format posts in WordPress that way. Multiple works should be submitted as a single document, with page breaks and titles to indicate where one poem ends and the next begins.
Any and all accompanying art or photography is strongly encouraged! The header image should be in a 2:1 ratio and black and white, please. Additional images and multi-media should be sent separately from the .doc or .docx, no .pdfs. Please indicate where you want accompanying art to be placed in poems.
Send poetry submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
