A digital archive of text & image, petrichor publishes your reverse villanelles, collage clips, double/triple haibun, asemic cryptolectics, semiotic pictographs, or just something new. Old school remixes for the digital age will not go unspun. GIFpoetics & code tomes welcome, too. We welcome underrepresented voices and unheard approaches to poetics and the melding of text & image. If you aren’t seeing you out there, send yourself here.

We’re into:

Poetry: Send a single attached doc or docx file of no more than three poems, unpublished elsewhere.

Visual Poetry: No more than five separate PNG files, or a single PDF. We like the space bar.

Video Poetics: gif? mov? Why not.
