THE FLEA’s Submissions Portal Closing 20/12/2009

THE FLEA will close for submissions from Sunday >>>20/12/2009<<< until further notice. There remain a very few places in future issues up until May 2010. I still have many fine submissions received to evaluate, so if you have already sent me work you should hear from me over the next few weeks. If I have already accepted poems from you which I have not yet published, I will have indicated in the acceptance letter which issue and date of THE FLEA your poem will appear in; that might not necessarily be the very next issue. Poems have often been accepted for several issues ahead: do please check your acceptance letter for the exact issue & date of publication before assuming I have forgotten to publish it. If there is still a question, then by all means contact me.

THE FLEA Broadhseets will always remain online, & will probably also be permanently archived by the National Library of Australia's PANDORA project, as are The Chimaera and Shit Creek Review.

My thanks to all who have supported THE FLEA, & have won for it thereby such high reputation in the Commonwealth's opinion for the excellent quality of the poetry exhibited therein.

  1. I'm confused. Is December 20th 2010 "soon"? Or did you really mean 2009?

  4. All issues up until next May are pretty much full. The Flea does not want to get too far ahead of itself ;)

  6. Hiya Janice -- thanks for your support. I suspect The Flea will bounce again one day -- if not byte -- it just needs a little rest after its Birthday Bug Bash. Cheers Paul

  7. Those of us who have been Flea-d are grateful for its presence and its impeccable taste. How do I know it's taste has been impeccable? Why, because it published us. Of course.

  8. Us Flea-Folk are nothing if not self-reflective, Richard.

THE FLEA peruseth with its quick and round black eye the Thoughts you have so gently convey’d; & will byte & sip, & thinke, & publish betimes your pert Missive.
