Given that we're looking for poetry at the moment we thought that folk might find it useful to give you some insight into what we're expecting and perhaps also some pointers on writing poetry that works for us. This is especially intended to help anyone struggling with their inner editor over whether or not their work is good enough to submit.
Hopefully this will help any of you considering this but having the inner editor getting in the way of submitting.
The inner editor tells us all that our stuff isn't good enough, but usually the editor is lying to us. If you tick most of the boxes above (especially polishing multiple drafts and reading aloud) then send it in despite it all. We'd rather read it and give you feedback than not see it at all.
