After our last “Car Poems” installment of the season, scheduled for Thursday, June 28th, we’re driving off into the sunset for summer vacation. We hope that our readers will also relax, repair, and create new works we can publish when “Car Poems” resumes in September 2018. The address for submissions is or through the Politics/Letters submission link. The deadline to submit poems for publication in Fall 2018 will be September 20, 2018.

In addition to “Car Poems,” which focuses on poems about cars, travel, transport, driving, or anything remotely related to the road and its inhabitants, we are launching a new literary section this June that will continue throughout the year. Titled Anti-Genre, this new section will feature poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, and cross-genre explorations. Your imagination is our only limit (or the main limit, at least). Submit previously unpublished writings for this new, non-automotive section via the Politics/Letters submission link, or to 

Deadline for fall publication is also September 20, 2018.

Thank you so much for your loyal reading. See you in the autumn!

Theresa Smalec and Matthew Friedman
