At the present time Wordgathering is
accepting only poetry. Because our aim is to give voice to the emerging
genre of disability literature we seek work related disability or by
writers with disabilities.
Writers with disabilities can submit poems on any topic.
For topics unrelated to disability, Wordgathering will ask
you to confirm that you have a disability upon acceptance.
Non-disabled writers must submit work that relates in some
way to disability.
Submit up to 4 poems.
We prefer poems under 60 lines.
We would appreciate receiving the poems in at least 16 point
Any style of poetry may be submitted.
Previously unpublished work is given preference. If a work
has been previously published, please let us know where.
Work should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org
Write submission in the subject line of the e-mail.
Please send poems as attachments. On the attachment include
your name, conventional mail address and e-mail address.
Acceptance of work will generally come within a month. As with most
online journals, work submitted can not be returned. Unfortunately, due to
its non-profit nature, Wordgathering cannot provide compensation for
work that is accepted for publication.
