Poetry Open Fee-based

In poetry, we seek arresting and original imagery, sound-play, and meaningful line breaks. We want poetry that is not only personal, but also touches something bigger than the individual life of the poet; in other words, not cathartic poetry or diary-entries-with-line-breaks, but poetry that speaks to the human condition.

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.
