Three Pounds of Cells by Oonah V Joslin

“Once I knew only darkness and stillness…my life was without past or future... but a little word from the fingers of another fell into my hand that clutched at emptiness, and my heart leaped to the rapture of living. Helen Keller Our perceptions and interactions make us uniquely who we are. The moment we become aware, everything speaks to us “ not only people but animals, objects, music and art. Poetry first spoke to me because I was a slow reader. Poetry was short. I could manage a poem in reading time at school, going over and over it. Rhymes and rhythms helped me overcome my difficulties..."

Disabled Monsters by John C. Mannone

Reviews: In the world of poetry, there are those who paint intricate pictures with simple words and those who hone their craft, serving a greater purpose with their pen. In Disabled Monsters, John C. Mannone does both, creating bold displays of imagery while depicting how the human race deals with physical, mental, emotional, and behavioral disabilities.

One Day Tells its Day to Another by Nonnie Augustine

This is a debut poetry collection by Nonnie Augustine, author of poetry and fiction and the poetry editor for The Linnet's Wings. The poems are written in contemporary and traditional forms and many reflect on her experiences as a professional and private person, while other poems comment on the human comedy as most of us seem to live it. There are fifty six poems in seven sections, photographs by Robert Knisel, graphic design by Robert Leslie Smith, and layout by Marie Fitzpatrick of The Linnet's Wings.

One Day Tells its Tale to Another



We publish one or more full length poetry collections every year.

Excellence is the only criterion we insist on, however, there are additional requirements. The collection should contain at least 50 pages (and typically 80-100 pages + front and back material). It should have coherence in the form of theme, narrative arc, etc.

In general, we would like to see at least half of the poems published in literary journals and/or anthologies but we will consider a lower percentage if they appear in exceptional venues. However, we do not want work that has appeared in other full-length collections without the express permission of the publisher of that collection. No permission is necessary if it is from previously published chapbooks. In any case, no more than 5% of the work should come from chapbooks and full-length collections combined.

Our staff editors (and/or their appointees) will form the selection committee.

Since we do not charge a reading fee (yet), we will be very selective before requesting the full manuscript.

Therefore, please send a query letter to, which contains a description of the work, a writing sample of 5 poems from the collection, and your literary bio. All in one Word document (.doc or .docx).

We will evaluate the submission and get back to you within a month (if time allows). Be prepared to submit the entire manuscript containing an introduction, acknowledgment page, table of contents, and the properly sequenced poems for further review.

Successful manuscripts will experience editorial feedback. Our professional staff will be happy to work with the poet directly (un-agented submissions are welcome). This includes cover art (we have a few visual artists on board, but we will also work with your suggested art if is of sufficient quality and resolution). Also, we do not charge for the ISBN and will distribute your book through Amazon and possibly other mechanisms. And though we will market your book through our avenues, we expect the bulk of it be done by the authors. Our authors should be actively engaged with the writing community so that they can promote their work through social media platforms, poetry readings at local bookstores and special events, as well as on Zoom, or equivalent, spaces of gathering.
