About

POETRY IS THE HEARTBEAT of imaginative prose, and at Narrative we do all we can to encourage the conversation between poetry and prose. Each week we select a notable poem and feature it prominently in the Poem of the Week column on our home page. An announcement of each new Poem of the Week goes out to our readers, and the poem is eligible for selection as one of the annual Top Five Poems of the Week. The poem is also permanently available in our Archive.

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.
