Our reading period is OPEN from October through April.
Our reading period is CLOSED from May through September.
We will not respond to poems sent to us when our reading period is closed.
THANKS FOR CONTINUING TO TRUST CACTI FUR AS YOUR POETRY DRY GROUND!!!!
Thanks for considering Cacti Fur as a possible home for your poetry.
The only way to know if your poems will fit in here is to send them.
Your work may be selected for our blogroll which we post new every Wednesday.
As of 2023, we want Cacti Fur to be a safe place to be sober. A safe place to say something about alcohol from the other side of it. We’re a dry poetry journal.
Include all poems in the body of your email.
We prefer all lines left justified and we prefer no stanza breaks because that’s easier for us to publish due to technical limitations on our side.
A cover letter is optional; if you do include a cover letter, put it at the end of your poems and tell us something unique about yourself.
Simultaneous submissions are welcome.
Please allow up to 3 months for a response (this is a hobby for us, not a job).
Submit up to five unpublished poems to Jim Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
