The Camel Saloon invites original and previously unpublished poetry.
Prose pieces may also be considered for placement in the tavern itself or in The Bactrian Room.
For the general philosophy of the joint, see the Editor's Interview at Duotrope: http://www.duotrope.com/interview.aspx?id=4744
HAT AND COAT CHECK POLICY
The editor requests that the following be checked at the door:
(1) Poems about being a poet, poems about writing poetry, and poems about poetry;
(2) Poems about cats; allusions to cats; or mention of same;
(3) Poems that conclude by asking a question; and
(4) Pithy thoughts or aphorisms of a few lines masquerading as a poem.
On poems about the 1960s, the War in Vietnam, and all related events, the Saloon prefers to let the dead rest in peace, and for the ghosts to speak for themselves.
Please refrain from word attachments unless requested.
Simultaneous submissions will not be accepted without specific permission.
Published work will be retained in the archives of The Camel Saloon on a non-exclusive basis. The Camel Saloon may select certain works published in this or an associated space for inclusion in annual, "best of" or similar electronic or print anthologies or highlight issues.
Thank you for your patronage.
