Rejected Poems Can Live Another Day

A call for submissions that offers new life for rejected poems. Sort of takes the sting away a bit….though I wonder what it feels like to have rejected poems rejected by the journal that accepts rejected poems??

The Redheaded Stepchild only accepts poems that have been rejected by other magazines. We are accepting poetry submissions only during the month of August for our inaugural Fall 2008 issue. For more information, please visit our site. We accept only email submissions via

In the body of your email, please include the following:
a brief bio
3-5 poems
the publication(s) that rejected the poems.


DC-area author Leslie Pietrzyk explores the creative process and all things literary.
