Principles of Submission
Authors aspiring to have a Poetickal Worke exhibited in a future Broadsheet of The Flea may submit no more than THREE Workes during a Submission Period, those workes being best gather’d together into a single submission, rather than dispatch’d as three separate Items.
A single poem (or, rarely, two or three) by a given author, may be selected for publication in one or more future Broadsheets.
Works must be original and, in the sole judgement of The Editor, of a sufficiently distinguished character both thematically and prosodically. Submissions must be sedulously corrected before despatch.
Authors may avail themselves of the technical submission facilities, when such are reinstated in the lower region of this page, carefully inserting the title, text, and any notes appertaining into the space there provided, & taking note of instructions, provisos, and exhortations. Such submissions will attract an automatic acknowledgement.
When submissions are re-opened, delivery by electronic æmail to The Editor will also be accepted, with the submitted poems included in the body of the text. If formatting of the submitted poems be difficult to render thus, Authors may attach MS .doc or .docx files.
