Call for Submissions 2014
Dossier: On the Occasion of . . .

Each issue of Court Green features a dossier on a special topic or theme. Our twelfth issue will feature poems "on the occasion of . . ."  We are looking for poems that revisit the art of the occasional poem with expectations that conventional uses of the form be broadened, challenged even.  All styles are welcome. 

Submissions for the regular and dossier (On the Occasion of . . .) sections can be sent during our submission period, March 1 through June 30, 2014. We do not accept more than one submission per poet during our submission/reading period. Please note that we do not accept more than five pages of poetry (one poem per page).  Please supply a SASE for notification only. Submissions will not be returned. Poems submitted outside our reading period will be returned unread. We will respond by August 31. Submit to:

We are also accepting email submissions exclusively through Submittable:  The cost of submission through Submittable is $3.00.
