“Baby one night somebody / going to strike a match on a tombstone / and read your name.” ― Frank Stanford

POETRY Submissions


You may submit up to five poems of any length.

Our editorial staff can take up to three months before we make a final decision.

Simultaneous submissions are allowed and encouraged.

If individual pieces are accepted elsewhere please write a note in Submittable.

We do not accept previously published pieces.

All rights revert to the authors upon publication, though we ask that you acknowledge BOAAT.

Beginning in 2019 we’re going to publish online issues every three months, with 15 poets per issue.
