Call for Guest Editors

MISTRESS is looking for new guest editors for ISSUE 04. If you are interested in being a guest editor, please email rachel.statham@poemmistress.com with a little about yourself, your experience, and why you'd like to be a part of the MISTRESS team.

Guest editors are responsible for fielding and reviewing submissions, as well as promoting the journal via social media, print materials, and word of mouth. Locality of guest editors is a non-issue as long as individuals have experience working collaboratively using Google apps. If you have more questions, please feel free to email us at rachel.statham@poemmistress.com

Submission Guidelines

MISTRESS is not currently accepting submissions. Please check back in August for updates.

MISTRESS accepts poetry, creative short fiction, or excerpts from longer fiction for submission. Authors may submit up to five (5) pieces of poetry and/or two (2) pieces of short fiction per issue. The length of all pieces combined should not exceed 2,000 words or five (5) pages.

Simultaneous submissions are welcome as long as you notify us if your work is accepted elsewhere; previously published work will not be considered. Contributors retain all rights, but are asked to acknowledge MISTRESS as first publisher if pieces are published elsewhere. We are currently accepting email submissions ONLY. PDF files are preferred, but .doc, .docx, .odt, .rtf, .txt, and .wpt files are also accepted.

Email your submission to submit@poemmistress.com with "SUBMISSION" in the subject line. Please include a brief cover letter with your files.
