Along with this introduction, I'll note some small changes to our poetry guidelines. You may send up to five poems at a time and may immediately send a new submission should you receive a rejection. It is acceptable to send your poem(s) in the body of your email.
With no further ado, here's a few words from Alexandra:
So Brandon asked me for a blurb. Here goes: I'm a strict vegetarian, a martial artist, a writer, a poet, a critical reader and a daydreamer. I like strange, places, people, ideas. Religion isn't for me, really, but I'm very open to Buddhism. I don't much care about being pinned down or figured out.I am extremely grateful to Brandon for trusting me with editing the poetry for FU. I suppose I should mention that I take this quite seriously and also that I tend to be very critical with my own writing. As an editor, I can be no less critical with the sort of thing I choose for publication, anything less would be plain wrong. My intention is to make FU's poetry section a shiny thing of wonder and delight, and to the best of my ability, bring something noteworthy to the field of spec poetry. I know I can be ambitious, please indulge me :)
Send Alexa your poem today. Issue Three is going to be amazing. In the meantime, our second issue will be available by Friday. It features, I should mention, only one poem. But what a poem it is. If you love all things Arthurian, you are in for a treat. And if not, you might just be swayed. Check back here for direct links to your favorite retailers. Happy reading!
