CUE would also like to take this opportunity to invite
submissions of book reviews, critical pieces,
interviews, and translations. CUE welcomes unsolicited
submissions of prose poetry year-round, but we do not
accept e-mail or computer-file submissions. Please
mail submissions to:

CUE: A Journal of Prose Poetry
PO Box 200
2509 North Campbell Ave.
Tucson, AZ 85719

CUE is published independently twice a year
(fall/winter, spring/summer). Mail four to five prose
poems at a time. A cover letter citing publications
and awards, if any, is helpful, but please keep it
concise. Prose work should be individually typed
single spaced on one side of the page. Although we
tend to publish less of the absurdist / parable /
fable aesthetic, we will consider anything so long as
the work is compelling. Work considered experimental
is strongly encouraged. Unsolicited book reviews,
translations, and criticism are also considered.
Please do not send us multiple submissions, and do not
send another manuscript until you hear about the
first. No more than a total of two submissions per
year. Additional submissions will be returned unread.
Mail your manuscript in a page-size manila envelope,
your full name and address written on the outside.

All manuscripts and correspondence regarding
submissions should be accompanied by a self-addressed,
stamped envelope (S.A.S.E.) for a response; no replies
will be given by e-mail or postcard. Expect about one
month for a decision. We now receive well over three
hundred unsolicited manuscripts a month, so please be
patient. Do not query us until two months have passed,
and if you do, please email us, being sure to indicate
the postmark date of submission.

Simultaneous submissions are amenable as long as they
are indicated as such and we are notified immediately
upon acceptance elsewhere. We do not reprint
previously published work. Payment is two copies upon

The CUE editors are always looking to review new books
of prose poetry. If you have a book you would like us
to consider for review, please send it to the above
