HOW TO SUBMIT

  • Do NOT submit multiple poems separately.  Please submit all your poems together in one document
  • Fill in the title(s) of the work(s) you are submitting. If you are submitting more than one poem, separate the titles with commas.
  • If you are submitting work for someone else, please fill out this form with your contact information and note the original author of this work in the cover letter field.
  • Type cover letter text into the cover letter field with any additional information you'd like to send.
  • Use the Add File button to find the file on your computer that you would like to submit. Select the file and click on the Open button. Your file will then appear in the "file" field.
  • Review your information to confirm that it is correct. Click Submit and you're done!
  • You should receive a confirmation via email letting you know that we've received your submission.

IMPORTANT NOTES

  • Upload only ONE submission; wait until you receive a response to your submission before uploading any more.
  • Our current response time is about seven months. While we wish we could respond with personal feedback, the volume of submissions received and the small size of our staff prevent us from offering individual criticism.
  • To make sure that you receive our e-mail responses, set your spam filter to accept messages from submissions@poetrymagazine.org. Otherwise, our notifications may end up in your "junk" or "spam" folder, or be deleted by your e-mail system.
  • We can only consider submissions written in the English language. We welcome translations of work into English.
  • We consider only previously unpublished work.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.
  • Please let us know immediately if one of the pieces you have submitted is accepted elsewhere. If your submission contains more than one poem, you will need to withdraw your submission and resubmit those poems that are still available, or you can request to edit your submission in Submittable and remove the accepted poem.

Thank you for your interest in POETRY.

Sincerely,

The Editors
