It’s always satisfying to have a found poem accepted for publication! My poem “Closure,” a blank verse poem created from lines in the April 6, 2014 edition of The Salt Lake Tribune, is included in the riveting anniversary issue of Sonic Boom.
Sonic Boom is a literary & arts journal that seeks both solicited and unsolicited experimental poetry, flash fiction, and visual art submissions tri-annually. We hope to integrate multifarious genres of literature and artwork including Japanese short-forms of poetry, avant-garde, conceptual, and postmodern works of culture and art.
Their anniversary issue does not disappoint–filled with a wide variety of poetry forms, a section specifically for short-form poetry entitled “Paper Lanterns,” two fiction pieces, an interview with poet and editor Mark Young, and pages and pages of gorgeous visual art.
Their next reading period is in February 2016. They will be accepting experimental poetry, Japanese short-forms, flash fiction, and visual art. There are no fees to submit previously unpublished work (personal blogs, Facebook, Twitter, etc. do not count as previously published).

NEXT OPEN: Feb. 1 – Mar. 1, 2016
SUBMISSION FEE: None
FORMS: experimental poetry, Japanese short-forms, flash fiction, and visual art
