Rockvale Review

Accepting submissions: Jan 01, 2018 — Mar 31, 2018

Rockvale Review seeks poetry submissions for Issue Two. Send us the poems you hold close beside you, the ones you carry with you into sleep and wake up with in the morning. Send us poems that are hard-edged and finely crafted, but can reach beyond the skin to the flesh beneath. Send us solid, tough language – the rock of this human experience, and send us fluid, supple images – the vale of this human existence. Do both in the same poem. Of special note for Issue Two, each accepted poem will be paired with a photograph from our featured photographer, Michelle Casady. Please read our guidelines in their entirety before submitting.
