Yes, you heard that tweet correctly. LA Weekly is now accepting submissions of original poetry to be published on this very arts blog! We're interested in your sonnets, haikus, ballads, lyric essays…hell, even your raps, perhaps? Anything you've written and have rights to that is previously unpublished. Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration.
Here are some things you should know:
1) We do not accept submissions anywhere but email@example.com. We reserve the right to publish anything sent to that address.
2) An image will go along with each poem we post, so please send us one you'd like us to use, as well as a proper photo credit. Please note we may use a different image if we find one that's more appropriate.
Right now we're particularly interested in poems with an L.A. spin — about L.A., referencing L.A., or capturing L.A. in some way. Get yours to the inbox pronto, and you might see it on the web very soon.
