Autumn Sky Poetry 23, the Art issue, now live


Greetings!

The twenty-third issue of Autumn Sky Poetry, the Art issue, is now online.

Read poems and enjoy art by Mary Alexandra Agner & Julia Tenney, Jesse Anger & Adamo Sacchetti, Catherine Chandler, Noelle Leslie dela Cruz, Luke Evans, Jen Karetnick & Jaime Ferreyros, Jean L. Kreiling, Mary Meriam, Richard Meyer, John Savoie & Shannon E. Thomas, Joannie Stangeland, and Laura Elizabeth Woollett.

With this issue, Autumn Sky Poetry is going on an indefinite hiatus. I’m grateful, as always, that so many talented artists and poets have graciously allowed me to publish their work over these past six years. Thank you for making Autumn Sky Poetry one of the more enduring poetic experiences of my writing life.

—It's all about the poetry.

Sincerely,
Christine Klocek-Lim, Editor

Call for Submissions: Every October, Autumn Sky Poetry publishes artwork as well as poems: visual, video, etc. I'm looking for poems with corresponding artwork, or ekphrastic poems. Please read the Submission Guidelines for details and feel free to peruse last year's Art issue, Number 19, for examples.

If you haven't heard from me yet, you will in the next few days.

I am now open to submissions for the October Art Issue, which means I will be looking only at ekphrastic poems or poems accompanied by some sort of artwork: photography, video, fine art, music, etc. Click here for guidelines.

email acknowledgements

Dear poets,

I know I usually manage to send out acknowledgment of receipt within a few days of receiving your submissions, but family obligations have been preventing me from doing so the past few weeks and the week to come. Rest assured, I'm receiving your submissions and I'll still be reading during July for July's issue.

SASE—yes, it's important

I've been getting snail-mail submissions for a year now, ever since I placed a listing in Poet's Market. However, I am amazed at the number of submissions I receive without a self-addressed, stamped envelope (SASE). I honestly didn't think I needed to specifically state that I needed one of those, but apparently I do.  So, for the record:

If you are sending me a snail-mail submission for Autumn Sky Poetry, include a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Please.

If you don't include an SASE, I won't be responding, particularly if you haven't included an email address. Your poems will disappear into my recycle bin and you will be left wondering what the heck happened to them. Why am I so mean about this? Because I can't afford the envelopes and stamps or time. I already pay for all the online stuff out of my own pocket without any hope of ever recovering my costs, so I'm certainly not going to fork over more cash for stamps and envelopes. If you have never heard of an SASE before, please read up about it. It's important.

I have my ten poems!

I just finished choosing the ten poems/poets for April's issue. Because I am crazy busy, I even managed to layout all the poems today. The proofs are ready to send out to the contributors, just as soon as I hear back from them about the acceptances. Yay!
