Deadline February 28 (must be received by this date; don't enter before January 2). Misfit Magazine, a journal of contemporary narrative poetry and free verse, is open to submissions three times a year: January 2-February 28, April 1-May 31, and September 1-October 30. Send 3-5 unpublished poems, maximum 7 pages total, and a 2-3 sentence bio, in an MS Word .doc attachment by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Editors say, "Above all else: Be Real. Show some grit, some grist, down in the dirt, real life experience... Above all, no bull, no shit, no religious, no greeting card verse, no genre, no hearts and flowers, and no rants, political or otherwise. Don't try and impress me because you won't. Just send something solid, that feels real."
