Now accepting submissions for Scalawag’s next poetry series: Poems & Playlists

Open Submission Period: January 22 — March 5

Poems aren’t artifacts. They’re a happening. So much of a poem is not just about how it lives on the page but also how it lives in the ear. Southern poetry has a rich history of musicality. Ahead of National Poetry Month, we want all y’all Southern poets to submit your work. We ALSO highly encourage you to submit a playlist (no more than 5 songs) along with your poems so that your readers have something to vibe to. Oh yeah, and we’re offering $50.00 for accepted poems, so send us your best shit!

Use the form below (or click this link) to submit your work.
