Submissions of up to five unpublished poems composed in any poetic genre or form are welcome from poets actively enrolled in a graduate program. We accept poetry from anywhere in the world—though the poems do need to be in English.
Submissions are read year-round and we accept simultaneous submissions. We ask for first North American publishing rights. Rights revert to author upon publication. By submitting, you accept that your work may be used or archived on our website as well as in subsequent print or electronic anthologies, and that your work is original.
We regret we cannot pay for work, however, authors will receive a free copy of the print journal.
In your cover letter please include your name, e-mail address, title(s) of poem(s) submitted, the name of the university and program you are enrolled in, and a brief description of your field of study and research interests (to be included alongside your work). Accepted poets are also invited to send audio or video files of them performing their work, which will be embedded alongside their poems on our website.
Send your poetry as a Word “.doc” file attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org with “poetry submission” written in the heading. Please allow three to four months for a response, though you will usually hear from us much sooner. Thank you and we look forward to reading your work.
