To receive updates on new poets published here, follow on WordPress or Twitter (@underfootpoetry)
Submit up to six poems in the body of an email, along with any other info (bio, photo, website) to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rights to all work reverts to the author upon publication, but it may appear in a future print anthology of some kind.
I hope to publish one new poet and/or Forerunner a week, some weeks maybe more, depending.
As to what to send: sorry, no manifestos to be found here. Just send us what you think is good poetry, regardless of content, style, etc. I could give a list of those subjects I do or don’t like, but the best poets usually surprise me in upending both.
More so that prose, poetry is an art immensely aware of tradition. If you’d like to contribute to the Forerunners section, email me at the same address as above. All this entails is selecting ten or so poems from someone you particularly admire, from ancient Mesopotamia to postmodern Whoever, and writing a brief paragraph or two as an introduction to them.
I look forward to reading.
