All submissions MUST have “ATF7 Submission” in the subject line of the email, and be sent to

For poetry, please include your bio statement and up to four response poems. Each poem should include a line beneath the title to show which poem(s) or photograph in the j.lewis chapbook inspired it. (For poems, reference the poem’s title; for photos, ref. the page on which the photo appears.)

Photography and / or artwork submissions should be attached to an email as jpg files, no more than 1MB per image, and no more than four attachments per submission. In your email, include your bio statement, and please list the title of each photograph or artwork entry, along with the reference for which poem or photograph inspired it (for poems, list the titles; for photographs, give the page number from the original chapbook on which the photo appears).
