The Texas Poetry Calendar Has been a staple of the Texas literary community for over 20 years. It is a spiral bound calendar / planner / journal featuring short poems addressing the geography, iconography, and cultures of the Lone Star State. Poems are accepted in English and Spanish (with an English translation attached for review purposes only). We accept submissions worldwide but familiarity with Texas is a must.

Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for some submissions. They charge fees for non-"early bird" submissions.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
