    I once sent in a poem submission. What do you want to know exactly?

    I really want to know what type they are – how open they are to accepting from new people…

      <p>I’ve been published by them – twice, I think. They published two pieces of fiction that I wrote a few years back. I stopped trying them, though, because I found them to be very loyal to their “headline” writers and not so excited to break in anyone new. I also wasn’t thrilled with the editing process. The first piece they were okay with; my second piece was published with changes that were absolutely not approved by me – like, the title was completely revamped to be a message I didn’t want to portray… I tried submitting once after that, but they didn’t accept.</p>

    I submitted a poem to Binah about a year ago. This was the first time I sent them a poem, as a new writer to them. They did not accept it 🙁 .

    Yup, I also sent one recently and it wasn’t accepted.. From the many poems I’ve sent and read, I got the feeling that they publish poems with a very subtle message…

    I sent in a poem that was rejected. It might be somewhere else soon. (I didn’t share that info on the appropriate thread. I will when I see it iyH.)

    I once attended a writing workshop by Yael Mermelstein, where she said (as far as I can remember) that Binah is always looking for quality stories.

    She also publicly critiqued a participant’s fiction piece–which was subsequently published in the magazine! (Hey, maybe become friends with an editor first?;))

    <p>I’ve been trying to submit to Binah for the longest time. Poems to be specific. No go… Maybe I should get some critique from masterpiece members before submitting.</p>

      Yeah, I feel like they have a certain style… like their poems have a very subtle, gentle and specific message. I kind of have to read their poems a few times till I get it. But that’s just my experience.

    <p>The poem I submitted got into the LAF ezine.</p><p>I wouldn’t give up trying to submit poems to Binah if I had something that I felt might fit the bill. Defining the bill is a bit hard though.<br></p><p><br></p>
