Hi XXXXXXX:View Comments
Thanks for sending work. We're pretty open to new writers; every issue
of Gestalten has at least 1 totally unpublished poet. But overall, people don't usually start writing experimental work. Your poems are quirky, and have a light-hearted tone that we don't see very often. But we need heavily experimental, abstract work---the sort of stuff most people don't accept as "poetry." The Gestalten web site has some samples from past issues (see also the "Selby" gallery).
