Hahaha

there are two ways it works. one way is much better than the other.

One really good really smart well known poet runs the show and calls the shots. he or she knows quality, and has a good eye, and if its a good poem, it gets in.

The other option is the grad school model, where a bunch of dipshit grad students get togheter and read the submissions, and then vote on the ones they like. The problem w this model is in many programs the overall quality and discernment of the grad students isn't all that particulatly high. they choose dumb ass work that is closer to their skill set than work that is over their skill set on occasion.

I've been published in both sets. the second example is a bit more arbitrary than the first.
