It’s here! The deadline is rapidly upon you!
Submissions have been sliding under the door all year, it’s been a delight peeking at and seeing all the wonderful and moving pieces being sent in, but the submission window is now rapidly closing; get your poems in while you can. The last day to submit for the 2023 ROAR Showcase is today! Submissions close at midnight. You’ve got some time left, but don’t procrastinate too long – get cracking! Send in 5 to 7 pieces of original work in the body of the email or in a single attached document to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Submission [Your Name] Roar.” Work that balances on a reoccurring theme or purpose will likely be favored. Be powerful, be vulnerable, be brave. Each poem should have a maximum count of 106 lines. Prose pieces should not exceed a standard page (8.5 x 11). Poems that exceed this limit by a few lines will not be rejected but will be strongly disfavored. GLJ accepts poems and prose published on personal blogs.
Go read the work of our current ROAR champion, Candice Louisa Daquin, to get a feel for what GLJ is looking for.
Admission is free, so you’ve got nothing to lose.
As always, stay brave. I’ll hopefully be seeing you soon. ♥
