MountainWord accepts poetry submissions via phone

Vic Burkhammer at MountainWord is accepting poetry submissions over the phone, where he plans to post the audio of them online. What a cool idea! A notice was also posted in The Gazz this morning.

From his blog:

"If you'd like to recommend a book of poems or read one of your unpublished short poems over the phone, just call me at 304-348-5184 and wait for the voicemail to kick in, leave your name and number for verification and then read away. I'll consider posting the audio on MountainWord. I'm looking for work of under 20 well-written lines. Nothing sentimental or old-fashioned. Prose poems of exceptional quality are eligible too. The tone can run the gamut from humorous to serious."
