Worried about your reputation? Don’t apply.
We don’t give a damn about our reputation.
What we do give a damn about is throat-punching, gritty poetry. We expose the rejected and the oppressed. We give voices to the broken pieces of society that talk about stuff no one else will.
We request an $8 application fee + 10 poems emailed to us (the application) – if you are unable to meet this financial requirement, please contact C. Cimmone.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE
You will be listed on our Masthead under REGULAR CONTRIBUTORS – contributors are listed in order of date-of-hire
We have a slot saved for you each month – YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO PUBLISH A POEM EACH MONTH TO REMAIN AS A REGULAR CONTRIBUTOR
Work directly with the Managing Editor of The Rest of the Punks, RAMI OBEID – he will help you choose and fine tune your poem
If you do not have work for the month – that’s ok – we’ll catch you next month
READ THIS BEFORE YOU APPLY
We are not obligated to publish you each month – your work must be approved by our EIC and work must coincide with issue themes (if any)
We publish raw and often disturbing or graphic poetry and photography – because you are listed on our Masthead, your name would likely be associated with our content – IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE PUBLICLY LINKED TO THIS CONTENT WE URGE YOU TO PLEASE RECONSIDER WORKING WITH US
This is a creative process – any unsavory responses made to any member of our staff regarding suggested edits or publication material is considered ABUSE and will result in an IMMEDIATE DISMISSAL FROM OUR TEAM
