Molly Bloom appears online only, three times a year (January, May and September). Most contributors are here by invitation but unsolicited submissions are welcome at any time, by email only, to Aidan Semmens.
The first criterion for selection is simply the editor's sense of what fits, but bear in mind the good advice of Wallace Stevens that "poetry must resist the intelligence almost successfully". Molly Bloom is not interested in light verse or, generally - despite her famous soliloquy - 'confessional' poetry: if the first person pronoun occurs frequently in your writing it's probably more likely to find favour elsewhere. No handy label defines what Molly will approve, but the best way to get a feeling of what might tickle her fancy is - of course - to read the magazine.
If you think your work might fit here, please send no more than four poems, together with a brief biographical note, including details of any recent publications. Poems may be sent in the body of an email, or as .doc, .docx or pdf files.
