Editorial Focus: 

Shot Glass Journal is an on-line poetry journal devoted to short poetry. Where other poetry journals publish poems of various lengths and forms, Shot Glass focuses on both free verse and form poetry of 16 lines or less. We believe in fostering emerging talent as well as publishing well established poets. Why only short poetry? It is far more difficult to capture a message in fewer words and still have an effect on a reader. Shot Glass is dedicated to those poets who have much to say in the fewest words possible. As William Shakespeare wrote in Hamlet, "...brevity is the soul of wit..."

Tips From the Editor: 

Free form and form poetry are accepted as long as the poems submitted are 16 lines or under. Shot Glass has a US and International poetry section so please indicate the country from which you are submitting.
