The New York Quarterly

The New York Quarterly was established in 1969 by the late William Packard out of a growing concern for the pure craft and technique of poetry writing. We are looking for tough poetry that is not afraid to delve within, poetry in the hinterland, poetry of the steppe -- poetry on the edge.

General Poetry Submission Fee: usd $3.00


• We only publish poetry.

• We are open to submissions on a rolling basis year-round.

• Submit between 3 and 5 poems of any style or form in one document (.doc, .docx, or .pdf).

• Make sure that your poems have been proof-edited and appear exactly as you want.

• We do not require a cover letter, but please enter a brief bio of 75 words or less.

• Simultaneous submissions are encouraged, but please inform us of any acceptance elsewhere immediately. In order to withdraw only select poems from your packet, please send us a note on the message function of Submittable.

• Previously published poems will not be considered. We consider poems to have been previously published if they have been selected for publication by an edited venue. This includes new versions of a previously published poem.

• Please wait 6 months between submissions.

• We ask for first world serial rights, after which we retain the right to include it in an anthology, and the right to maintain it indefinitely on our website. All other rights return to the author upon publication.

• We only accept submissions through Duosuma and Submittable. Unsolicited email submissions or submissions sent via the postal service will not be read.

• If you feel that you absolutely cannot afford the submission fee, please click here.
