The Shrub-Steppe Poetry Journal is aiming for publication in May.

A new print journal featuring local poets and their work is targeted for publication in May 2019. The Shrub-Steppe Poetry Journal is now accepting submissions. 

“The purpose of this project is to gather the many poets of Central Washington under one literary roof, to highlight the value of poetry in our culture and in our daily lives, and to offer the chance for publication to new and/or developing voices,” said Susan Blair, creator and editor. “It fills a gap: there is currently no such publication.” 

Send one to three original, previously unpublished poems (one poem per page, five pages max) to Shrub-Steppe Poetry Journal ATTN: Susan Sampson, P.O. Box 238, Malaga, WA 98828. 

Include a cover letter with your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, poem title(s) and brief bio. “We are asking for a $10 donation per entry to help defray costs,” said Susan. “Contributors will receive a copy of the journal as payment.” Checks should be made out to Shrub-Steppe Poetry. Deadline: March 15. 

Writers must live in Central Washington (in Okanogan, Chelan, Douglas, Grant, Kittitas, Yakima, Benton or Klickitat County).

“This Journal will represent and reflect the residents of Central Washington, so please send us your best poem(s),” said Susan. “You choose the topic: nature, family, politics, science, life issues, etc.”

Electronic submissions may be sent to sfblair61@gmail.com, with “Shrub-Steppe Poetry Journal” in the subject line and poems in .doc format attachment. 

Send donations to above post office box. More info: sfblair61@gmail.com.
