What is this? and Submission Guidelines

The Balloon is an online blog for poetry. We look to publish poetry that is new, exciting, literary, innovative, and just about any positive adjective you can attach to the word "poetry." We are looking to publish poems by new poets as well as more established writers.

We have no preference for style or content, just send your best work. The selection process is, needless to say, completely subjective.

Also feel free to send essays/critical pieces on poetry and poets.

But we are open to other tastes.

Submission Guidelines:

Send 1-5 poems to the editor at:
The subject line should read "Submission to The Balloon."

Either put poems in the body of the e-mail or send as .doc files.

Simultaneous submissions are fine. Each poet receives his or her own post with the poems accepted.

Please allow 1-2 weeks for a response.

Hope to read you soon.

Your Editor,
Connor Stratman
