Poethead was conceived as a woman friendly publishing space. I welcome work from poets regardless of their age, ethnicity or their level of experience. I am especially interested in publishing experimental, surreal and translated poetry work. The site’s three indices are non-hierarchical and poets of great experience regularly jostle with new poets as a matter of Poethead policy. We must trust that the reader will find the poet. The submitting poet should understand that this site is a platform for a diverse range of interested readers as well as for poets. I do not accept books for review or launch notices, please do not send requests for reviews to me.
Those poets interested in sending work to an Index Of Women Poets may email me with 5-6 poems in a single document (formats accepted are: .docx, .doc, and .rtf , or you can paste your work into the body of your email). Please send me a short biographical note and a suitable image to accompany your work. I accept series, sequences, visual poetry, long form work, translated work, audio and video links. I do accept previously published poems once the journal (and journal’s editor) is properly attributed.
My readers have a wide range of tastes in poetry and many have been following the site for nine years. I am delighted to have such a loyal and interested readership who have been here all along.
Many thanks, Christine Murray
