While the future is inescapable, near or far in the background or over the horizon, maybe the most a poem can be is a realization of things come to or that come together. At moments.

Opon is an offshoot of Delete Press, and is edited and designed by Brad Vogler. Some things of interest include: poems accompanied by writing on process/procedure, a series of revisions, collaborative work, interviews and visual poetry. Maybe it isn’t any of these things, and you have something else in mind? A surprise can be nice. Things longer in length, 8-10 pages are preferred, but this isn’t a requirement.

Opon appears once or twice a year, and does not acquire rights to the work published here, though I would ask that you acknowledge Opon if the work is reprinted later.

Opon is not accepting submissions at this time, but if you have a question/comment etc send here: oponeditor at gmail.com.

If you would like to be informed when a new issue goes live, and about any open calls for submissions, enter your email in the form on this page.
