All such interviews must be below 7500 words in length. Permission by both the interviewer and interviewee must be granted for publication; contact and biographical details must be presented for both.

All works reviewed must also be in print at the time of publication. If you wish to submit material for review, please contact us at We will require two copies of any such work to be submitted. We need, in particular, the following information for all reviews:

We accept prose poems, but these must be under 500 words in length, and double spaced. From May 2007, payment of $10 AUS for all accepted poems and prose poems will be made.

Any correspondence sent to us must be sent in the body of an email. Preference is given to analytical pieces, or pieces addressing material that has appeared in previous issues. If you wish to use emphasis, place asterisks on either side of the material to be emphasised like *thus*. This will be printed in italics. With all correspondence, please supply a valid email address for replies. If you wish that your email address be withheld, please advise us in a coda to the email.

Any correspondence arising out of previous correspondence will be forwarded to the relevant person for the chance to furnish a reply. This is one reason why we need an email address with all correspondence.

We are particularly interested in bibliographies of material about speculative poetry or speculative poets. All such bibliographies must follow a standard format, with analytical annotations for all major works described. Webliographies are also welcome, however, all links should be working at the time of publication.
