Please send NO MORE THAN 5 unpublished poems in ONE file — poems you feel don't fit into our specific departmental categories, but still deal with social justice issues. Note that we accept simultaneous submissions. Look to hear back from us in 3-6 months at the very latest.

Should your work be accepted elsewhere, congrats and please withdraw all in the submissions manager and resubmit any remaining.

And do look at sample poems from HEArt's Current Issue for an idea of what we are looking for. Avoid heavy-handed "preaching to the choir." Our aesthetic is concrete imagery/narrative that has a strong emotional center.

Also, please include a brief bio in the comments section with a note on how you heard about HEArt Online. We thank you for bearing witness, telling truths, submitting your work.
