The reading fee is $7 for every 25 lines you submit. If you submit a sonnet of 14 lines and a haiku of 3 lines, totaling 17 lines, the fee would be $7. If you submit three poems of 15 lines each, totaling 45 lines, the fee would be $14. Exclude your poem titles and any blank lines from your line count. There is no limit on the number of lines or number of poems you may submit.
