Submit to Et Cetera the journal

if you have creative work you've written

hybrids, essays- a poem bout your kitten

Submit to make your work eternaI

We publish once a year, a publishing miracle,

If you submit, grad schools will be smitten

And it’s free! There’s no fee for submission! 

Its less painful than an epidural

Just go online to our submittable,

And write a cover letter, but not too long

The published work will be unquittable— 

You’ll find buttons for genres that are hittable 

Upload up to three poems, prose, or songs 

It’s good for cvs, the launch party’s the bomb 

With your help, this issue will be unequivocal
