Autumn 2022 is Live

Rust and Moth’s Autumn 2022 issue is live! This issue is unavoidably present. In the present tense, tense, and a gift by any other name, these poems explore the pain and wonder of being here, now.  Featuring new work from Katie Kemple, Ben Groner III, Jared Beloff, Jennifer K. Sweeney, and many others, we’ll be publishing new poems online every week and building toward a finalized print edition this September. Join us online as the issue unfolds!

Update: Form Submissions in June

The Rust and Moth editors recently learned about some technical issues with our submission form. Our in-house submissions manager incorporates elements of Google technology, and it appears that recent updates on Google’s end temporarily disabled the form. Most form submissions from June 17th — June 30th were auto-discarded; emailed submissions during that time were unaffected.

We’ve now responded with a yes or no to every submission we received in June, so if you’re waiting for a response still, it means that your submissions wasn’t received. We apologize for the trouble; we know how much care goes into prepping a submission and the inconvenience isn’t lost on us.

We should have everything up and running just fine by our next open reading window, which opens in September. Thanks for thinking of us, and sorry again for the hassle! We hope to read your work next time around.
