Blue Turtle Crossing is a non-profit e-zine dedicated to spotlight talented poets and artists. As editor, my goal is to shine the spotlight on poets and give them an opportunity to have their work shown to the world! This website does not generate any income. Therefore, no monetary compensation is available in exchange for the contribution of your poems. However, being published on-line will provide authors with publication credits, a sense of accomplishment and the ability to network with other authors and hopefully publishers!
Submissions from new and established poets are welcome and encouraged. If you would like to contact me or contribute to an upcoming issue of Blue Turtle Crossing, send three to five poems to me for consideration, pasted in the body of an e-mail, not via attachment. Please reference "Submission" or a similar title in the subject box of your e-mail and send the poems in the body of your e-mail.
ANY SUBMISSIONS WITH ATTACHMENTS WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY DELETED!!
Plagiarism will not be tolerated. You must certify that the poems submitted are your original works. Previously published or simultaneous submission poetry is acceptable, provided the artist maintains rights to the poems. If you do submit previously published poetry, please provide the year and the name of the publication that published the poem, so that proper credit may be given. Author retains all rights to poetry published on this e-zine.
No offensive, pornographic, violent or explicit material or language will be considered for publication. Please remember that this website is for viewers of all ages. Only appropriate material will be considered for publication. The editorial board reserves the right to reject material deemed offensive or unsuitable for this publication. Please allow several weeks for review of submissions and response.

If you have submitted to me before, please note that the e-mail address for this e-zine has changed. Please do not send your initial submissions to my personal e-mail address. You may receive future contact from me at my personal address.
Thank you in advance for your participation in this e-zine. It is the work of fine poets like you that continue to make this website a success. I look forward to working with you!
