The Redheaded Stepchild, call for submissions

I just received this call for submissions from Malaika King Albrecht, whom some of you may know. She's a fine poet, originally from New Orleans, now living in Southern Pines. This sounds like a great idea! I'm going to submit some of my rejects, and I hope you will, too. We have until the end of August to make literary history!

The Redheaded Stepchild.

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 at

We accept only email submissions via redheadedstepchildmag(at) (replace (at) with @).
In the body of your email, please include the following:

a brief bio

3-5 poems

the publication(s) that rejected the poems


  1. This is a great idea. I sent a few of mine. Those poems we love that keep getting the boot might find a home somwhere after all.

  2. Thanks so much for posting this! Hope your having a blessed day.

    We're so excited about the inaugural issue and grateful to all the poets that have sent us poems.
