The Cape Rock appears twice a year, spring and fall.

  • Submissions of poetry and other correspondence are welcome, but a self-addressed, stamped envelope (SASE) must be enclosed to guarantee a return or reply.             
  • Contributors' names and complete addresses should appear in the upper right-hand corner of each submission.
  • We publish poetry; no restrictions on subjects or forms, but we prefer poems under 75 lines. Our criterion for selection is the quality of the work.
  • No sentimental, didactic, or "cute" poems.
  • All contributors are paid in copies.
  • We do not accept previously published material.
  •  The Cape Rock retains first printing rights, then rights revert to the author. The Cape Rock should be credited as the original publisher if the work is subsequently placed elsewhere.
