One thought on “Poetry Submission Guidelines

  1. My mother grew up in Binghamton and was an avid writer who longed to be published. She lived Binghamton and wrote fondly of it. She passed away two years ago and I’ve been reading her many poems and short stories and am so impressed! I wonder if you would allow me to submit some select pieces. She nor I attended your workshops so this would be just a huge favor and thrill for her (assuming of course that her spirit would be aware). Thank you for your time.
