Poet Grow-Op - What we are looking for

What you can write, and how we want to see it:

Keeping with the eclecticism of TAR, The Poet Grow-Op is open to a wide range of poetry. Submissions are not restricted to a particular form or style, content or point of view. We’re looking for creativity, originality, and craft. Wow us! We just ask that your work be single-spaced with size 12 font. (And no crazy fonts, please!)
