Art

Collages, mixed media works, paintings, drawings, sculpture are all welcome. We seldom publish photography.

Please submit between 3 and 12 images. Images should be uploaded as individual files (.jpg, .gif or .png), rather than embedded in a document. 

Images should be at least 550 pixels on their longest side; 750 or larger is best (Images will be resized to fit our format). Please name each image with its title or include a caption.

Your artist's statement, introductory note, or other accompanying text is optional but welcome.

I look forward to reading your work!

Please read these guidelines before continuing to the submission form.

You may submit up to six poems. We often publish poetry in multiples, and your chances are best if you submit more than one. 

Important: If submitting more than one poem, please submit all poems together in one document. To do so, open a new document. Paste all of your poems into it. Then, upload it here. 

Please don’t double-space your poems (unless they must be presented that way when published).

We don't accept poetry which has been previously published online. 

If we've previously declined one of your submissions, please wait at least 60 days before submitting again. 

Other things to know: 

While only about 15% of the Empty Mirror website is devoted to poetry, poems make up for about 85% of the submissions. I don't want to discourage you - please do submit! - but understand that I have to turn away many poems that I wish we could publish.

I give each poem my full attention. There's only one person (me) reading poetry submissions and given the volume, it can take quite a while to get through them all. Thanks for your patience. 

I look forward to reading your work!
