DUE TO A TON OF QUERIES WE'RE OPENING THIS POETRY SECTION. PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT YET HAVE A FULL TIME POETRY EDITOR, SO RESPONSE TIMES MAY TAKE LONGER THAN OUR TYPICAL 1-2 MONTHS.
Fantastic Floridas explores the intersection between Florida, literature, art, culture, and the uncategorizable, while highlighting Florida writers, presses, lit mags and literary organizations. The name is taken, out of context, from Rimbaud’s poem, “The Drunken Boat.” The goal of FF is to form an online hub that engages readers in a conversation about Florida’s relationship to literature and art, and artists' relationships to Florida.
We are particularly interested in work that avoids common stereotypes, cliches, and tropes associated with Florida. Don't discount the weirdness, just handle it artfully.
We are open to all kinds of poetry, as long as there is a strong Florida connection.
- Submit up to 3 poems - each poem in a separate file
