Besides horror or paranormal, we will begin accepting poems about everyday life, observations, experiences but they should contain something of a darker nature. We want poems that linger and haunt.
Previously published work is now being accepted if it was originally published more than one year ago. Be sure to include the journal where it first appeared. No simultaneous submissions.
We are no longer accepting art work for Black Poppy since we rarely ever received any art, there's no reason to include it.
Black Poppy will be nominating 6 poems for the Pushcart this year. Nominees and their poems will be posted within a few days.
* My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and families of the horrendous, terrorist attack that took place in Paris yesterday.
