We are open to receive submissions during the following periods:
- May 1 - June 30; and
- Nov 1 - Dec 31
Alba accepts original, previously unpublished submissions via email (email@example.com). We do not accept paper submissions. We publish short poetry twelve or fewer lines in length (though we may make occasional exceptions to this rule). We have a preference for free verse as opposed to established forms such as haiku and tanka.
Here are some of our favorite poets: Ezra Pound, Kobayashi Yatarô, Emily Dickinson, Matsuo Kinsaku, e.e. cummings, William Carlos Williams, William Stafford, and Duane Ackerson.
Please include the word "SUBMISSION" (in caps) on the subject header of your email. All submissions must be included in the body of your email. Please do not send attached files. We cannot consider submissions received as attachments.
Alba acquires exclusive first-time Internet rights. Poems will also be archived online. All other rights revert to the author. We are not a paying market. Our usual response time is two to three months.

Shot Glass Journal is an on-line poetry journal devoted to short poetry. The journal focuses on both free verse and form poetry of 16 lines or less. Issues are posted at the end of the January, May and September.
Shot Glass Journal will accept NO MORE THAN FIVE POEMS per poet, so please submit your best poems. Submissions are accepted year-round. Issues will be posted at the end of the January, May and September, with submissions closing on 1st of the posted months.
You may submit any original, unpublished short poetry with 16 lines or less to Shot Glass Journal via Submittable, our on-line submission program.
Muse-Pie Press's policy is to not consider previously published poems. If a poem is posted on a blog, website, or social-networking site, or another online journal, we consider it published. If a poem is posted in a private writing forum and intended only for feedback or community support then we do not consider that published.
Due to the limited selection of poets per issue, response to submissions may be withheld until just prior to the journal posting.
Any inquiries should be addressed to Shot Glass Journal Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
