Pedestal Mag Seeks Poetry on War, Deadline is May 21

In preparation for their June 2017 issue, editors of Pedestal Magazine, a bimonthly on-line literary journal based in Charlotte, N.C., have opened a brief window (ends May 21) for poetry submissions related to themes of war. They write:
For the June 2017 issue, Pedestal editors will be accepting poetry on the theme of 'war.' We welcome work from both veterans and non-veterans, and would like to see a variety of responses—literal, confessional, figurative, and metaphoric. Send up to 5 poems (no restrictions on genre or length). Please include all work in a single file. Payment: $40 per accepted poem.
Editors seek new work only. Simultaneous submissions OK. For more information, click here. Submittable page is here.

A Facebook page for the magazine is here.

Pedestal Magazine was launched by John Amen in December 2000, and currently features poetry, fiction, visual art, interviews, and reviews. Each issue features from 15 to 20 works. The most recent issue, No. 79, focused on the genre of speculative poetry.

Regarding war themes, Issue No. 78 notably featured a poem titled "Underwater Detonation of a World War II Bomb," by John Davies.
