Two of buk.net's own have teamed together to create a new quarterly poetry magazine called MILK.

chronic and I recently began work on the first issue, which will be published this summer. We are now ready to begin accepting submissions.

Please check out the 'submissions' link on the new website - www.milkpoetrymagazine.com - for guidelines and then send your work to: submissions (at) milkpoetrymagazine (dot) com.

Thanks, and we look forward to your poems!


When I run my hand across a page of poetry I do not want oil and onionskin, I do not want slick bullshit; I want my hand to come away with blood on it. And God damn you if you are otherwise.

Well done - looks very professional as would be expected.

If I can find something that doesn't suck I'll send it your way.

i am going to submit to this... and i'm super lazy about submitting anywhere, so that's like a big deal or something.

A nice look. I like that title. You could press it against your forehead on a hot summer night. Anyway, if I don't don't flake out and entirely forget, I will shoot you five poems and hope for the best.

It's Josh's magazine and he'll be doing the poem selection and editing duties. I'm just handling the graphics and typesetting end. I got so excited about doing this project that over the past couple of weeks I've already mocked-up about ten years worth of covers... really. I'm not exaggerating. It's helped to get my mind off of the grim realities of my miserable life.

Send in dem pomes!

And make 'em good ones, godammit!

I've been waiting for A new poetry magazine in the tradition of The Wormwood Review.

Thanks, chronic & marina del rey.

Oh yes--very nice. "In the tradition of the Wormwood Review"--that lofty goal alone means this mag is worth our best!

Thanks to everyone for all the great feedback.

One thing I neglected to mention is that the deadline for submission to the premier issue is 15 May.

Keep those poems coming!

One other thing, if any of you know any good poets who aren't buk.net regulars, please spread the word.

Send in dem pomes is unintentionally great, Chronic! One more m and you're asking the Germans grammatically correct to send in fries!

Send in dem pommes!

I'll try my hardest to make some great tasting crunchy fries, too bad they'll be cold when they arrive... but that's what you get for a request like that.

:D

But seriously, the mag will be very good, I'm sure.
Thumbs up.

I apologize that we've had an issue with the submissions e-mail server for last day or so. A big thanks to everyone who let me know that they were having problems.

The issue should be resolved now, so you can send your poems to submissions (at) milkpoetrymagazine (dot) com.

I will send an e-mail out later today to everyone who has already submitted to let you know that I got your email.

Good thing you're not handling the rejection slips.:)
Another worthy candidate for POTY.

One other thing, if any of you know any good poets who aren't buk.net regulars, please spread the word.
I certainly do and will also send in some submissions myself.

Sounds like you two will make a great team. At least you have the "labor" divided up pretty neatly, which is essential to any multi-party project.

I'm only printing it from a polymer plate. It was designed by another member here. It looks freaking amazing.
