Door = Jar
The wonderfully-titled Door is a Jar magazine welcomes submissions that steer ‘away from academic writing’; it ‘publishes short, conversational works that use familiar language’. In other words, accessibility is key. The editors encourage familiarising oneself with previous issues – which can be done via Kindle – before submitting. Each poem (to a maximum of five) should not exceed one page in length. Only submit previously unpublished work. Full details here.

US small press Tolsun Publishing Inc is (in their own words): ‘a non-profit, small press based out of the Mojave and Sonoran Deserts.
‘We publish daring, energetic books that use separate parts to construct a whole: poetry, short stories, comics poetry, hybrids, photo stories, flash memoir, and more. We treasure creativity, and so we may not know we love something until we see it. Art, like the jackalope, cannot be restrained by classification or form.’
The submission period runs until 31st May 2019. There is a submission fee, except on 15 May. Full info on submitting your work of many parts here.
