Red Flag Poetry is proudly supported by the English Literature & Criticism Program at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
Why The Old-Fashioned way?
Everyone loves a good piece of mail. Break up the bills with a piece of poetry written for you by one of our talented poets and sent off, with love, from our desk to yours! So, slow down, take a trip to the mailbox, and read a poem. It sure beats paying bills.
Why not poetry? We believe that poetry is an especially powerful form of art. Poems challenge us to read and think in new ways. Poets ask us to feel and experience worlds we may or may not know, but to enter them and try to make sense of being there. Good poems can change your life. Red Flag Poetry intends to share this passion for poetry with you!
What sort of poetry do you print?
Red Flag Poetry is drawn to pithy poetry that employ interesting and innovative language, images, or content. For our print postcards, we value a shorter form both for ease of presenting on a postcard but also for a quick poetry fix on the fly. We read all submissions and welcome all kinds of poetry, so submit your work today!
Ok. I want in. How many Poems can I expect?
Poetry is our passion, but unfortunately it isn't our day jobs. Our goal is to share one poem a month to start. We would love to expand someday, so tell us what you think about it!
I'm a writer looking to get my poems printed! What's the selection process all about?
We read everything that comes our way! Submit up to three poems in one cycle by clicking the link to the left. We will contact you with a decision 2-3 months after the close of our reading period.
