The best way to understand what Banango Street is looking for is to read the latest issue. All submissions for Issue 7 will close on March 15th, 2014, at midnight. Submissions for our special issue will be open until the issue is full.
Writers whose work appeared in Issue 6 of Banango Street are not eligible to appear in Issue 7.
We regret that we cannot provide monetary compensation to contributors at this time. We do pay in kindness and beers if you ever swing by the Midwest, where our editors are located.
Ends on 4/15/2014
Do not submit previously published work.
We accept simultaneous submissions.
Please do not include your name in the actual submission file.
For translations, please include the original piece, as well as your translations. We publish these side-by-side. If the original work is under copyright, please attain permission from the original author before sending us the work.
In particular, we want poems that make us feel exciting things, poems that break us (and themselves) in interesting ways. We want poems that take dives from the highboard and then try to jump back upwards and fall into the water at the same time. Be surprising. Strange and risky is better than boring.
Banango Street has first publication rights; upon publication, rights revert to the author.
If your poems end up in a chapbook or book, we would love if you acknowledged us.
Submissions close on March 15th at midnight CST.
Ends on 4/15/2014

Please email us at email@example.com if you are having trouble submitting your artwork.
Submissions close on November 15th, 2013, at midnight.

Think Kara Candito's "Family Elegy In A Late Style Of Fire," (http://howapoemhappens.blogspot.com/2013/02/kara-candito-isthe-author-of-taste-of.html) written after Larry Levis, or Mary Ruefle's "Poem by Dean Young" (http://poemslikeme.tumblr.com/post/4625016102/a-poem-by-dean-young-by-mary-ruefle).
Send us 1-3 poems that transcend imitation & create their own space on the literary landscape. We want to see the influence of the writers that you're covering, but we also want to be able to see your voice in the writing as well.
