Gists and Piths is open to submissions of original, unpublished poetry. Please send up to six of your poems to The Editors [1] gistsandpiths AT hotmail DOT co DOT uk included in the body of the email: no attachments, please, we won't read them, unless we already know and trust you, in which case, bring it on. Our tastes should be apparent from the blog, so if you're unsure as to whether your work fits in, have a thorough browse before submitting. No simultaneous submissions, please. If you want to send anything longer - a sequence, say, or a neo-Homeric epic - please let us know in advance, and send a sample of what you plan to submit. If your work has been accepted, the editors will get back to you within two weeks; if you have not heard back from us within that period, please take it as read that your work has not been accepted, and feel free to send it elsewhere.

Alternatively, you might want to send us a review or an article. Reviews should be between 500 and 1000 words in length: again, have a look around the blog to get sense of what kind of reviews we're liable to publish. If you want to send an article, meanwhile, give us a flavour beforehand (an abstract or a sample), and we'll let you know if we're interested in publishing the whole thing.


[1] George Ttoouli and Simon Turner, but calling ourselves The Editors makes us sound more impressive.
