*Poems are accepted free of charge for this ministry, however, space is limited so there is no guarantee of
publication. No poem should be more than 24 lines long and should either lift up the name of Jesus or be of a
positive nature or both. No more than one poem per calendar month. THE EDITOR RESERVES THE RIGHT TO
REJECT ANY POEM DEEMED UNSUITABLE FOR THIS PUBLICATION, and I take this right very seriously!
I don’t want dirty and unclean poetry! It WILL NOT be published on this site! Style is up to the author. Author (creator of the poem) retains all rights to his / her work. *If the poem is created by more than one author, each author must sign it.
I cannot stress this enough, if sending by Postal Mail, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, include a SASE (Self
Addressed Stamped Envelope) with each and every submission! Also, a SASE ensures a response. No SASE, No
RESPONSE! E-MAIL Submissions are Preferred via attachment in Microsoft Word format or within the body of the text. You may submit by email
at: firstname.lastname@example.org. P.S. A photo and very brief bio of yourself and your publishing credits is well-appreciated, but not required.
Submission must have the author’s name and return address on each
poem submitted. By regular postal mail, see the address below.
