E·ratio is reading for issue 28, the July 2019 issue.  The deadline for submissions is June 15.  Please read and follow these general guidelines:

E·ratio requests that you prepare your manuscript using Times New Roman 16 pt.  Please set your margins to one inch, left and right, and when indenting or arranging text, please avoid the tab key and instead use the space bar.  Likewise, when indenting or arranging text, please avoid readjusting your margin and instead use the space bar. 

Please consider your work in the transition from the text file to the html page.   

Please send cover letter, bio and poems together in one attachment. 

If you prefer to send a .pdf, then send both the .pdf and some sort of text file.

E·ratio publishes reviews (—please keep it to around 1500 words). 

E·ratio publishes translations. 

For art, text art and visual poetry, query with a link, or send no more than three pieces (preferably framed), .jpg, saved for the web. 

No simultaneous submissions, please.  Every submission receives a prompt response.     

E·ratio publishes poetry in the postmodern idioms with an emphasis on the intransitive.

By “idioms” (plural) it is meant a tolerance for variations.  By “postmodern” the absence of a hyphen. 



E·ratio is edited by Gregory Vincent St. Thomasino with contributing editors Joseph F. Keppler, Jacqueline Winter Thomas, Coleman Stevenson and Andreea Iulia Scridon.
