About

Work to a calm is a confessional poetry zine that wants powerful emotion, deep longing or heartfelt frustration. What it doesn’t want is anything torn from your diary or blog. Save that for your own eyes. Send 3-5 poems in the body of an e-mail with a cover letter and bio so the editor doesn’t get cranky and decides to delete your e-mail for not following what she wants. Please put “Poetry Submission” in the subject line. Also note that we do not accept simultaneous submissions. If you want to submit here, we want to know that we’re the only one you’ve considered for your poems. We don’t like to share. We’re territorial that way. The editor is Nastia Lenkova. Send submissions to worktoacalm@gmail.com.
