The Anglican Theological Review: Poetry Submissions

The Anglican Theological Review: Poetry Submissions


The ATR is a quarterly journal of theological reflection committed to creative intellectual engagement with Christian tradition, and to interdisciplinary inquiry that includes literature and the arts, philosophy, and science. Our readers are theologians and academics in religious studies, clergy, seminarians, and lay people interested in theology, church history, liturgy, and how the Church is responding to the challenges of the current moment.

The ATR has a longstanding commitment to publishing poetry alongside its academic articles and reviews, and to reviewing collections of poetry. We recognize the important contribution of poets to the Anglican theological discourse, from the sixteenth century to the present day. We print the work of established poets with numerous publications alongside the work of emerging poets.

The ATR seeks poetry that explores the contours of faith, doubt, and devotion, aspects of Christian spirituality, or larger questions of meaning. The poetry published in our pages uses fresh and evocative imagery, is attentive to the sound of language, and attuned to the work of contemporary poets as well as past masters of religion and literature.

We do not publish poetry that is archaic in language, saccharine in devotion, or didactic in theology. Poems that make use of traditional forms in inventive and surprising ways are welcome.

Please submit up to 6 poems as a Word doc or PDF. Include a brief cover letter and bio. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable, as long as you notify us immediately of a submitted poem's acceptance elsewhere.
