Lina McCausland

I thought I had escaped it like a missed call from a telemarketer
who tells me that my car insurance expired yesterday and Oh My, Excuse Me, Ma’am,
if You Don’t Renew Your Car Insurance With Us Right Away You Might Lose Your
License to Drive
but I hadn’t missed his call, I answered on accident and now I have to go back
and relive it all all all all over again.
I couldn’t say it for a few months after, I only said grapes. now, when I eat grapes, I
think about it.

Lina McCausland sent this poem in under an alias. She has no bio.

Raymond Carver

Raymond Carver
Maury Feinsilber

I sit and eat candy that tastes like old books

Honest to God

They’re Russell Stover

Hard candies

That I like to crunch

While sitting with the Internet

Looking at pictures of

Raymond Carver’s grave

Maury Feinsilber's work has appeared in The Missouri Review. He lives in Brooklyn, USA

Ben-Darrow Goodman

Shanghai Dawn has new eyes
brightest bulbs are breaking open
In prying yellow lines

Shanghai Dawn a heavy sun
moves marching feet through open gates
In hurried blurring runs

Shanghai Dawn has stories left to Tell
from far off homes we wash ashore
As scattered shattered shells

Ben-Darrow Goodman is from Delray Beach, Florida, born in Philadelphia. He currently likes moondogs, dubstep, and dads.

submission guidelines

hey so:

planet dad press accepts manuscripts year-round right now

we ask that they be 16-30 pages in length

see the parents, people, presses and mags we like for the kind of material we're interested in

the daily dad tries to publish short/flash fiction or poetry daily or something

there aren't really any guidelines

email with "_________ submission" (either planet dad press or the daily dad) as the subject line, then if you are submitting to planet dad please attach your submission in either a .doc or .rtf format, and if you are submitting to the daily dad please paste your submission in the body of your submission

thanks bros
