Foundry 155

About

Poems are manufactured objects — the intangible cast into forms. Foundry showcases poems crafted by writers at all stages of their practice. We are interested in poems as made things, and we are interested in their making.

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.
