I presently serve as an associate editor of The Cape Rock, the poetry journal produced by the Southeast Missouri State University Department of English with support from the Missouri Arts Council.

The Cape Rock appears twice a year, spring and fall. Submissions and other correspondence are welcome, but a self-addressed, stamped envelope 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 do not accept previously published material, and we do not read poetry submissions in May, June, and July.  All contributors are paid in copies.

The Cape Rock also features the work of one photographer per issue. Several photographs (preferably treating a particular place or theme) should be submitted in 8-by-10" black-and-white glossy prints. The featured photographer will receive $100.

The general editor of The Cape Rock is Susan Swartwout, Professor of English, Southeast Missouri State University, Cape Girardeau, MO 63701. All submissions and correspondence should be directed to her.
