EFNIKS will publish up to three poems each month by three different poets (one per poet). We may accept multiple poems from one poet at once and then spread these across our calendar. Our submission period is ongoing; poems received by 8/20 will be considered for the September issue and beyond, while poems received after 8/20 will be considered for October and beyond. Unlike other submissions to EFNIKS, poems do NOT need to match the monthly Cover Story theme. 

Please submit up to three poems of your best work in a single document to, and use page breaks or titles to indicate where one poem ends and the next begins. Compensation for all accepted poems is $35.
