The National Poetry Review is an online journal of poetry, previously a print journal (2003 to 2015) published by our sister press, The National Poetry Review Press. Distinction, innovation, and linguistic joie de vivre are important to TNPR. We agree with Frost about delight and wisdom. We believe in the value of rich sound and look for poems that stay with the reader long after they’re read. We seek to enchant. In addition, we seek to increase exposure and respect for our poets. We nominate to the Pushcart Prize (Ted Kooser’s poem from TNPR won a Pushcart Prize!), Best of the Net, and Best New Poets, and work published in TNPR has been featured on Verse Daily.

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.
