Francis House now accepts submissions through Submittable. The House is open to poems of all shapes and sizes, especially the oddly-proportioned and under-appreciated. Poems should be primarily in English, but we're super open to integrating other languages. Simultaneous submissions are, of course, fine, but please do let us know right away if any poems are accepted elsewhere.
Francis is especially interested in queer, trans, and non-binary poets, poets of color, immigrant poets, poets living outside the United States, rural poets, older poets, younger poets, unpublished poets, and anyone else living and working outside of the cis-het white patriarchal hegemony. Here are some more things Francis likes, so you can get a better idea of aesthetics: small-town gay bars; art installations in barns; Michael Stipe; Jaden Smith, especially in Neo Yokio; this ode to Rimbaud by Chen Chen; this text post about self care and Greek mythology; this photo of Andrea Gibson; apricots; bees; The Cure; the cute.
Francis asks for First North American Serial Rights, as well as the right to republish in a print version later. We wish we could pay you actual money, but we can only give you love and validation.
