About

Unsplendid is an online journal that accepts poetry written in received forms, which include, though not exclusively: Sonnet • Villanelle • Sestina • Ballade • Rondeau • Pantoum • Ghazal • Tanka • Heroic Couplets • Blank Verse • and more Please see Lewis Turco's Book of Forms for a more exhaustive list of forms we will consider. We welcome translations of poetry in traditional forms, as long as the translator holds the rights to do so (unless the work is in the public domain). Nonce, or invented, forms, which we define fairly loosely, we are eager to see as well.

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.
