    • Yes, as long as we have permission from both people to publish it.

      I’d hesitate to publish any bilingual work at this time, due to most of our readership being in America and the UK. However, if you feel confident that meaning will still shine through, please send it and we can let you know.


      • I could always just submit the English version, giving credit to both myself and my friend (Brazilian Portuguese). We are currently collaborating together in a writing project (I’m fluent in Portuguese), which I’m quite excited about as it in written on a topic that is very current and something we both study up on and enjoy writing about. Yea, I think that’s what I’ll do. I’ll ask him if he minds if I submit it only in English but giving credit to both of us.
        Thanks Laura.


      • Hi Laura. I’ve just submitted the collaborative poem that I had mentioned in this comment back in October. I noticed that the title didn’t appear for some reason. At any rate, the title is: Urban Melody. The poem has to do with the effects of post-modernism and modern society. If you have any questions, or if there’s anything missing that should have been included, just let me know ok.

  1. […] So take a moment to read the work from others in your community and vote for your favorite three this week! And yes, you can certainly vote for yourself. We don’t judge egos around here. The winner will be featured Sunday and be considered as a submission for the spring issue of the magazine. […]

  4. I submitted two poems in the submission form. I left 4 line spaces between each poem. After submitting my poems, it read to me as if both poems ran together. I am unsure how to fix this other than to say the first poem ends with the words “found nothing” and the second poem begins with the words “I remember.” I hope they read as separate pieces. Thank you for considering either of the two.
