The Poeming Pigeon: The Cosmos

From learning how to locate the Little Dipper to standing awe-struck under the Milky Way, humans have been asking: What’s out there in the great beyond? Could we survive on Mars? What is dark matter?

Send us your best stargazing poems exploring the great beyond, string theory and black holes.  Make a case for Pluto–planet or not planet? This theme is yours to take to the outer limits.

Submission Deadline: June 15, 2019  
The Cosmos Issue scheduled for release in Winter 2020.
$3.00 reading fee
