What We Are Looking For:

Poetry - We are looking for all kinds and all styles of poetry, rhymed or non-rhymed, forms or free verse, traditional to experimental. We are also open to all topics and genres except hard eroticism (graphic sexual content), and anything that is evil, hateful or injurious. We like raw and gritty poems about life, the world around us, society, humanity and the reality that we all deal with everyday as much as we like refined work about nature, idyllic scenes, idealism, love and light.  It doesn't hurt to send it to see if we want to publish it.

We are also open to all topics and genres except hard eroticism (graphic sexual content), and anything that is evil, hateful or injurious. We like that which deals with the world, society, humanity, people, the city, nature, the country, the universe and reality, good or bad, showing characters or people dealing with these conflicts of life.

Non-Fiction - We are looking for articles or essays about anything regarding poetry and the writing arts, from writing about a famous poet to a modern poet, writing about putting together a novel, or plot, or characters, or techniques of writing, or techniques in crafting poetry, and on. It can be about marketing books, publishing books, making a collection of poetry or a collection of short stories. If it is about poetry and writing, we want it.

News/Announcements - Send us your press releases for new books you have published or announcements and links to other work and other publications. We want to promote you, our subscribers and contributors, and your work. Send them by email to navpoet@outlook.com in the body of the email or in an attached document.
