NECTAR POETRY is a new online mini poetry journal, presented by Hummingbird Magazine. This project grew out of a necessity to create more space for BIPOC poets, particularly Black poets. Poetry and music are two currents in the same river, so we are so glad to have found a lovely home here with our friends at hummingbird. We love sweet poems that make hummingbirds buzz!

For a donation of at least $5.00, we will provide feedback on your submission, and you will be allowed to resubmit one poem upon reception of feedback. Additionally, if you are a BIPOC or QT poet, then you may opt for free feedback, no charge!

**We ask that you do not publish any accepted poems elsewhere before they appear in NECTAR POETRY. Upon acceptance, we own the rights to the accepted poems. All rights revert back to the author upon publication. If your poem is published elsewhere (e.g. chapbooks, anthologies) in the future, we kindly request that you credit NECTAR POETRY for initial publication (also let us know so we can give you a proper congratulations!).
