Submissions Policy
The submission policy changes depending on the project. Here's a recent policy for an upcoming journal for a black literary journal we're launching this summer: Guidelines: Individuals must identify as Black to submit to the publication. The works submitted may include, but are not restricted to topics around Blackness. TCO accepts simultaneous submissions; however, TCO does not accept work that has been previously published. Please use 12 pt. font, unless the font size is a device used for the poem. You may submit up to 3 poems. Please submit your works as one file with each poem on a separate page. Include a cover page with your: Name, Phone Number, Mailing Address, Email and social media handles. One poem will be selected by a committee of Black readers to win our $1,000 grand poetry prize. These will be shut-eye submissions (readers will not see your name until after the poems are read), so please ensure that your name appears nowhere else in the submission manuscript (aside from the cover page) unless it is a part of your poem.
