We are opening an on-line submission window for poetry from October 15 to December 15, 2019.  There is a $3 convenience fee for submitting via Submittable.  You may still submit hard copy submissions without any fees. We will have an on-line submission window for prose in early 2020. Until then, we will only review hard copy prose submissions via post with SASE or with an e-mail address for electronic notification.
