We are now accepting poetry submissions for a special issue of Mississippi Review, featuring work by writers with connections to the American South. 

Please submit no more than five poems (ten pages total). We pay $50 per poem and acquire first North American serial rights. Rights revert to author upon publication. We accept simultaneous submissions--please notify us immediately if a poem is accepted elsewhere.  

The deadline is August 1, 2022, and accepted work will be published in Mississippi Review 50.3 in early 2023.
