REALITY BEACH welcomes submissions of poetry. Poetry is an expansive term. Feel free to test this last sentence. Submissions should include up to eight pages in one file, preferably a word document for traditional poetry. Applicable formats for other forms are acceptable. Please title your submission in the following format: LASTNAME.DATE.POETRY

Individuals are encouraged to submit no more than three times a year. REALITY BEACH does not reprint recently published material.

While we gladly accept simultaneous submissions, please inform us in the body of your cover letter if your submission has been submitted elsewhere, and notify us as soon as possible  if a portion of the submission becomes unavailable. If no portion of a submission remains available, please use the withdrawl option.
