Welcome to Poetry magazine's submission system. If you have trouble using this site, click the "Help" link at the bottom of this page or email support@submittable.com. 

Please note that this is not a submission portal for the Poetry Foundation website.

HOW TO SUBMIT

  • One submission at a time, please.  When you upload your submission, wait to hear from us before uploading any more work.
  • Do NOT submit multiple poems separately.  Put all your poems together in one document.  
  • Fill in the title(s) of the work(s) you are submitting.
  • If you are submitting work for someone else, fill out this form with your contact information and note the original author of this work in the cover letter box.
  • Type any cover letter text into the cover letter box.
  • Use the Add File button to find the work on your computer you want to submit. Select the file and click the Open button. Your file will appear in the "file" field.
  • Click Submit and you're done!  You will receive a confirmation email confirming that we received your submission.  You can check the status of your submission by logging into your Submittable account.

  IMPORTANT NOTES

  • Again, please upload only ONE submission; wait until you receive a decision before uploading more.
  • Our response time is about 7 months. We appreciate your patience, and wish we could respond more rapidly, or with personal feedback - but we have a small staff and read over 150,000 poems per year. 
  • To make sure you receive our e-mail responses, set your spam filter to accept messages from submissions@poetrymagazine.org. 
  • We consider only previously unpublished work. Work that has appeared online for any reason is considered to have been previously published and should not be submitted.
  • Poetry accepts simultaneous submissions, but let us know immediately if work you submitted is accepted elsewhere: add a note to your submission specifying the work that is no longer available.
