<poet Charlie Mehrhoff

bear creek haiku: four sheets legal-sized blue paper cut in thirds lengthwise, stacked, then folded, two blue staples at fold, thus, 48 pages of poetry (and art)

Names, hometowns, state/country, page(s) poetry is on listed in first four pages  

Send poetry by postal mail with enclosed SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope), SASE used to mail contributor's copy., and, your email address... if one (or more) poems are accepted, any remaining poems are shredded (with dignity).  A sample copy: send an SASE.

30+ fine poets each issue.  Poems are presented just as received (appreciate how poet's physically present their poetry, including font/handwriting/even some misspellings, and, artwork).

Poems also often appear in blogposts, as in this one.

Poets outside the United States can submit by email (always include postal mail address).  Stateside preference is postal submissions, but, if you submit by email, um, ok.

7-8 issues a year. . .  an accepted poem can have almost any form (of course includes beloved haiku/senryu/tanka) - usually, 13 or so lines max.

                       Too many poets.
                                       Too many words.

                                        Issa alone.

Boulder Weekly needs our poetry!

‘Boulder Weekly - Boulder County’s Free Independent Magazine’, a 60+ page newspaper pub. with an innate ability to inform, stimulate and sometimes annoy, now has a poetry section. . .  Ted Kooser chooses occasional poems for some issues, yet, other issues (without Ted's input) include poetry that, well, umm, in other words, these folks, poetically, need our help.  Even if rejected, your finest poetry of 250 words or fewer, along with a one-sentence bio, to
may stimulate (what some perceive) as the underdeveloped poetry-perceiving neuronic ability of this necessary print presence in our local Colorado culture.

          and! this from assistant editor Frosty
          (and his assistant, Angelee Deodhar, Chandigarh, India)
