From the Folio guidelines:

FOLIO is a nationally recognized literary journal sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences at American University in Washington, DC. Since 1984, we have published original creative work by both new and established authors. 

We look for well-crafted poetry and prose that is bold and memorable. We want art that challenges. We encourage you to look at a recent issue of FOLIO to determine the compatibility of your work with our magazine.
