We are searching for poetry by the Clark College community that provoke thought and resonate.  Stray from the cliché or stereotypical imagery.  Avoid common topics--flowers, animals, and fantastical beings, for example. Capture what is real, both emotionally and physically.

Works that deal with mature and complex issues or themes are welcomed, but works that address them inappropriately, either through ill research or blatant bigotry, will be declined.  Please do not submit works that have been previously submitted for consideration to Phoenix. 

Specific Guidelines (please follow or your work will not be considered):
  • Do NOT put your name on the manuscript (works are anonymously judged)
  • Include a brief writer's statement that says something substantive about the work
  • Include the title on the manuscript
  • Attach submission as .doc or .docx files
  • Do not submit more than 2 works per literary genre
  • Edit your work carefully
