AMP. Always Electric.


Issue 2 is now closed to all but video submissions.

We'll reopen for Issue 3 {text and video} on September 1, 2017. 


General guidelines

We welcome submissions of poetry, short prose, experimental prose, innovative and hybrid (cross-genre) texts, video poems and literary videos. Our submissions window (via Submittable, below) is open year-round although our reading period is usually September 1 through December 1. We publish annually each spring.

Please send up to ten pages of previously unpublished text, or text with still graphics (original photos or drawings), in one document. If text formatting is important to your work, please send it as a pdf.

Videos should be no longer than 10 minutes. While we like MP4 best, we can accept 3gp, avi, m4v, mov, mp4 or mpg.

Include a brief bio as the cover page of your text submission and add your name and email address to each page of your work. Video submissions should include this information (a brief bio, your name and email address) on the Submittable entry form.

Please use Submittable to withdraw any work that has been accepted elsewhere and resubmit any work you'd still like us to consider. We only consider text that has not appeared previously in print or electronic form. Current students at Hofstra University are not eligible to submit work. 

We look forward to you.
