Jut saw this today. Good news;

"What Stanchion is Always Looking For

Stanchion is looking for unpublished* ....

*Stories & poems previously workshopped &/or published on social media, photographs and drawings posted on Instagram and Twitter, as well as writing published on a personal blog, are now in play to be considered for publication in Stanchion.

Do you include an individual poet's Substack newsletter in the category of "uncurated"? It seems to me it qualifies, but a definitive statement would be appreciated.

What about poems previously "curated " by entities that no longer exist? ( and cannot even be found in libraries... as some of my best lie dormant?)

Hi Tim, love the thinking - having just read this piece, I'v adopted "curated/uncurated" on both my personal bio and in the submission guidelines for publications from Open Shutter Press: https://openshutterpress.com Thanks, Pete Taylor.

Thank you for this excellent article, Timothy. Thank you also for initiating this positive and timely change, which I agree is well past due! I would be interested to know whether you would consider work published on the blogging platform Medium to be previously curated?

Oh, I come back to see if this page has more on the list and alas, no. It seems both editors and poets are stuck in the old paradigm.

Need to be patient. Most lit mags are run by committees of some form, which means arguing for weeks about the verbiage even after an agreement is reached in principle. There are others in the pipeline.
