Red Flag Poetry is proudly supported by the English Literature & Criticism Program at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
Why the old-fashioned way?
Everyone enjoys getting a good piece of mail. With the rise of the digital age, however, it seems that most of us only find bills and magazine subscriptions in our mailboxes. Break up the boredom with a piece of poetry written by one of our talented poets and sent with love from our desk to yours! Each of our postcards features a wonderful poem and a beautiful piece of artwork, and will look great tacked up above your desk. So, take a trip to the mailbox and read a poem. It sure beats junk mail.
We believe that poetry is an especially powerful form of art. It pushes us to think. It encourages us to explore and experience. It teaches us about ourselves, and asks us who we are. Red Flag Poetry intends to share our passion for poetry with you, because a good poem can change your life!
What sort of poetry do you print?
We are drawn to pithy poems 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 and for a quick poetry fix on the fly. We read all submissions and welcome all kinds of poetry, so submit your work today!
Okay, I want in. How many poems can I expect?
Poetry is our passion. Unfortunately, it is not our day jobs. So, we make it our goal to share one poem every month. We would love to expand someday, so tell us what you think!
I'm a writer looking to get my poems printed! What is your selection process?
