      1. Hon, I am very sorry, but I cannot that. There will be other opportunities, do not worry about.

  10. Hi, I wanted to clarify. The poems don’t need to have titles; it’s the anthology title that must be written for each poem? I had sent 2 poems in separate emails – just checking before I re-send.

    1. Hi, of course the poems have to have their titles. Please title them. Please keep in my that the poems should not be longer than one page, Times New Roman 12, double space.

  11. Wonderful poem, Gabriela, and thanks for the update on submissions. This has been at the back of my mind and I needed the kick in the pants! πŸ™‚ Have a wonderful week, my friend.
