Issue 4 is here! Please visit: Issue 4, Summer-Autumn, 2016. We continue to be enlightened and uplifted by the artistry submitted and included here. We hope you feel the same way!
We love sharing Panoply with our readers and contributors. It’s a labor of love – and also expense. Bandwidth and more. So, while we do not plan to charge submission/reading fees for regular issues, we’ve added a voluntary donation button. You’ll find it on the right-hand side of the page, complete with the PayPal logo. If you enjoy it as much as we do, please consider making a donation.
Issue 4 is set for August 19. It’s another joy of riches and beauty for us. This time, we’re featuring a sestina, a pantoum, a sonnet, a “punk sonnet,” works by a middle schooler and 2 international contributors, poems featuring poets of yesteryear (Neruda, Rimbaud…), a fistful of humor, and other remarkable writing. We can hardly wait to share it with you!
Thanks for visiting Panoply.
Andrea, Jeff, and Ryn

Pieces will be accepted on their merits. Please limit submissions to 3 items per issue (poetry and prose considered as separate entries).

We read 100% blind, so do not include your name or any other identifying information.
Please do not submit previously published work. Simultaneous submissions are ok, but please let us know promptly if your work has been accepted elsewhere. We generally do not notify submitters until after the submission period has closed and all pieces have been reviewed.
