Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
New Note Poetry is an online poetry magazine and chapbook publisher that features only the freshest poets and their verses. We aim to present new, genre-breaking artists while also fostering a high-quality brand. We do this by publishing our quarterly magazine featuring only the freshest voices as well as online chapbooks which show bold poets on the rise. Since poetry has been around since the dawn of language, it is too easy to say that everything has already been done. We believe that there is always a chance to add a new note to poetry, to keep it moving forward while leaving a mark.

Primary Editor/Contact Person
We have two outlets for submissions: our quarterly online magazine and our online chapbook series entitled Noteworthy Chapbooks. What We Publish: Poetry only. We believe that poetry is the jazz of the written word. Therefore, we are open to all styles except for metered rhyme or epic poems. We seek fresh voices with unique perspectives. We want to see poets who break the mold and play with language, poetic form, and themes. We love the experimental and the avant-garde but also appreciate seeing modern twists on classic poetic forms. No subject or theme is too far-fetched for us. What We Don't Publish: Anything that is not poetry and anything that discriminatory towards any person or group (we don't need to tell you what constitutes). We reserve the right to deny a submission on this basis.

How Did You Arrive At Your Current Position?
Through many ups and downs. I originally wanted to be a filmmaker, but I quit the industry. I became a writer instead and never looked back since. I started New Note Poetry based on my love for poetry.
Do You Have Any Cover Letter Advice?
"Professional" doesn't mean stiff. Use slang if that's how you communicate. I want to see your personality. Honestly, I stop reading cover letters that start with "To Whom It May Concern, I am writing to you inquiring about..."
What Do You Look For In A Submission?
Bold. Unique. Innovative. You can do anything with poetry, so do it. Don't write stuff like "I wish I could fly." You can fly in poetry. Use poetic forms and language to show me.
What Advice Do You Have For First-time Submitters?
Don't be nervous. The worst we can say is "no thank you."
Who Is Your Ideal Reader?
The poetry lover on the cutting-edge.
