Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Coastal Shelf is dedicated to publishing the highest quality poetry and short prose. We believe that the act of writing stimulates a person's empathy—something the world could use a lot more of these days—and encourage our contributors with personal notes and recommendations for every submission. As submitting writers ourselves, we understand the value that a little feedback has.

Primary Editor/Contact Person
We read submissions blindly, on a rolling basis with issue deadlines. Every contributor may submit 1-2 poems under 80 lines or 1 prose piece under 2000 words for free per issue reading period, or through the tip jar portal they can submit up to 5 poems or 1-3 prose pieces up to 6000 words total. Additionally we publish a feature called "Waterlogged Paper" for pieces that have been published in print but not online.
