  • The online magazine will no longer publish traditional fiction or non-fiction but will continue to seek flash fiction (under 300 words), poetry (all kinds, including prose poetry, with the exception of work that is graphically difficult to present online, ie., a lot of variable spacing and indention issues).

When submitting,

  • As before, paste your work in the body of the email rather than as an attachment. 
  • Also, include a statement verifying that all of the material you are submitting for consideration is your original material and that you own the right to submit it for publication. Without this statement, your work cannot be considered for publication. 
  • A brief author's bio should also be included. 
  • Submissions and correspondence to Editor Wayne Crawford,
Lunarosity is interested in poetry that illuminates complex issues or informs our understanding of important relationships. We value authors who generously expose their emotions and visions and spare us their wordiness. Rhythm moves us, poetic language moves us, formal rhymes likely won't. We are also interested in short, shortflash fiction but no longer consider personal essays or creative non-fiction. We like it, but we need to focus.

Lunarosity offers no pay. We seek permission to publish your work on the web, and to publish selected work as hard copy in limited editions that may be offered online or off in the future, and all other rights to work remain with the author. Authors should be aware that acceptance of your work here constitutes a form of publication, and other publishing forums may not desire to present work that has already been published. Writing featured on this site may not be copied or printed elsewhere without the consent of the author.

Wayne Crawford's MySpace includes poetry videos, including Workers Work.

PWP poets published in Lunarosity include Merimee Moffitt, Kenneth Gurney, Ann Applegarth, Hakim Bellamy, Gary Brower, Greg Candela, Tamra Hays
