OPEN MIC GUIDELINES
WHEN TO SUBMIT
You may submit anytime. Submissions, however, will be posted on a secret schedule known only to us.
(Perhaps monthly, or if the volume of posts is high enough, even more frequently.)
SUBMIT ONLY POETRY
Please submit one poem per round (Haiku, up to 5 in one submission). Upper audio limit, 5 minutes. Print limit, 150 lines or approx. 3 pages. Your picture, if you care to submit one, should be in GIF, JPG, or PNG format, max size 160×240 pixels.
DO NOT SUBMIT SONGS — THEY WILL NOT BE POSTED.
This is not a music site. However the use of sound effects, multiple voices, and other sonic performance techniques is welcomed and in fact, encouraged.
AUDIO SUBMISSIONS MUST BE IN MP3 FORMAT. (Audio submissions are not supported yet, but that will be remedied shortly.)
If you need help acquiring MP3 capability, check our technical support pages. MP3 software is available free for the downloading and we’ll tell you how to acquire it.
Language per se will not be censored. This is not a bigchain bookstore cafe and our visitors (you) are considered to be intelligent adults. However, work that in our judgment is racist, sexist, or otherwise offensive (in the opinions of our otherwise broad-minded editorial board) will not be posted.
