You know you do. (Molly asked me to post this.):
The following news doesn’t yet appear on The Seattle Review‘s website, but keep it in mind while preparing fall submissions:
“Announcing Sweeping Format Changes and a Call for Long Poems and Novellas
The editors of The Seattle Review are pleased to announce that, starting with our forthcoming fall 2010 issue, The Seattle Review will publish, and will only publish, long poems and novellas.
We are looking for exceptional, risk-taking, intellectually and imaginatively (as if these two could ever be separated) poems between ten and thirty pages in length.
The long poem can be:
a single long poem in its entirety
self-contained excerpt from a book length poem
a unified sequence or series of poems
We are also looking for novellas (see above description of poetry): stories between forty and ninety pages long.
Please note, as of May 2010, poetry submissions to The Seattle Review of less than ten pages in length, and those submissions of less than forty pages, will be returned unread.”
