Issue 3 Theme: Self-Portrait As
tiny wren is taking a hard look in the metaphorical mirror with its Issue 3 theme "Self-Portrait As". Submit up to six (6) tiny poems that convey your self-portrait in unique or surprising ways in a single Word document (.doc or .docx). Each poem should be on its own separate page, single-spaced, + in 12-point font, nothing fancy. We like tiny poems, so we're looking for miniature self-portraits. Work should be your own and unpublished. Before you submit, please read our FAQ page.
Check out Robert Okaji's "Self-Portrait as Blemish" from Issue 2 for inspiration.
tiny wren will publish accepted poems on its website and also provide a link to download poems in zine form.
