The guidelines say not to submit previously published poems. Does this include poems posted on a personal blog? Thank you for the help!
Hi Kate. Normally when a literary journals ask for unpublished poems they do consider a personal blog a publications. However, we ask that you remove poems from personal blogs before you submit to us. So it can be previously published on a personal blog as long as it has been removed. If we end up publishing your poem you may repost it on your personal blog or wherever you like. –Rob
