WHO WE ARE

Small Orange is a poetry journal that publishes three times a year in the months of October, January and April.  Each issue comprises roughly seven poets, the work of one visual artist and one interview.  We will consider creative nonfiction essays.  We love all kinds of poetry and are dedicated to featuring the most beautiful, inspiring and thoughtful work provided to us.  If you are interested in submitting your work, please visit our submissions page for the guidelines.  We are a small volunteer staff of four, but we do our best to read and respond to submissions as timely as possible. All correspondence should be sent to editor.smallorangepoetry@gmail.com.
