Name: Becky Milanski
JobDetails: Blue Mountain Arts is accepting freelance submissions for review. We are looking for highly original and creative submissions on friendship, family, special occasions, positive living, and other topics one person might want to share with another person. Submissions may also be considered for inclusion in book anthologies. We pay $300 per poem for all rights to publish it on a greeting card and $50 if your poem is used only in an anthology.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR: Contemporary prose or poetry written from personal experience that reflects the thoughts and feelings people today want to communicate to one another, but don’t always know how to put into words. Because our cards capture genuine emotions on topics such as love, friendship, family, missing you, and other real-life subjects, we suggest that you have a friend, relative, or someone else in your life in mind as you write. Writings on special occasions (birthday, anniversary, congratulations, etc.) as well as the challenges, difficulties, and aspirations of life are also considered. We are looking for new, original, and creative writings that do not sound like anything we have already published. The poem length does not matter, so long as it can fit on a card. We publish both long and short pieces.
WHAT WE ARE NOT LOOKING FOR: Rhymed poetry, religious verse, one-liners, or humor. Try to avoid frequently overused words and phrases, such as “special,” “gift,” “sending you a hug,” “birthday wishes for you,” and “angel.” We receive a large number of submissions about mothers, sons, daughters, and love. For these themes, we only consider writings that are refreshing and unique or that express age-old sentiments in new and different ways. (Hint: Avoid lines like “You were always there for me,” “I remember when you were a baby,” “I am so proud of you,” and “You are my dream come true.”)
Email your submissions to email@example.com with the subject line “LinkedIn Submission.” PLEASE DO NOT SEND ATTACHMENTS OR WEBSITE LINKS. Type or paste the text of your work(s) into the body of the email. You may submit as many different works as you wish all in the same email. Be sure to include your name, address, and telephone number. Email submissions will receive an automatic reply as receipt of your submission.
Submissions selected for further review will receive a response within 2 to 4 months. We are unable to respond to email submissions that are not chosen for further review, so if you do not hear from us within 4 months, you can assume that your work is no longer under consideration.
