We at DMQ Review are excited to offer The DMQ Reviews: Micro Reviews of New Books of Poetry, edited by Annie Kim. In each issue we’ll feature three or four new poetry collections out from indie presses, books that spark discussion around a theme that emerges from our reading. We’re looking for both new and established poets, both smarts and heart. Above all, we’re interested in craft.
Please submit a .pdf file of your book in final proof format and a cover letter that includes a short bio, date of publication, and name of publisher. Your book must be a full-length collection and have been published within the last 12 months at the time of submission to be considered.
Unfortunately, we cannot respond to emailed inquiries about review submissions. Please submit work that you believe meets our criteria and we will respond to your submission as soon as we are able.
We look forward to reading you!
