'Blue Streak' Seeks Mil-Poetry for Second Annual Issue

Editors of The Blue Streak, a free on-line poetry journal published by the non-profit Military Experience and the Arts, Richmond, Ky., recently opened a call for submissions to its second annual edition. Editors seek previously unpublished poetry from veterans and military family members of all eras. Deadline for the December 2014 publication is July 1.

The 2014 edition is managed by poet Suzanne Rancourt ("Billboard in the Clouds"), a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps and Army veteran. She is assisted by poet Jason Poudrier ("Red Fields"), an Army veteran of the Iraq War.

Guidelines include:
  • Submit no more than 3 poems at a time, or up to four pages. Use single-spacing.
  • Simultaneous submissions are not accepted.
  • Include "BLUE STREAK SUBMISSION" and the title of the submitted work(s) in the header of online submissions.
All submissions are placed on one of three tracks: Submissions may be accepted as submitted, or writers may be invited to work either with editors or within an online circle of peers. "We will never reject a writer outright," the website reads, "and we will continue to work with writers as long as they are willing to continue to revise and write."

More submissions guidelines are available here. A submissions page is here.
