Poetry South 40

About

Poetry South is a national journal that considers all kinds of poetry. Though we pay particular attention to writers from the South (born, raised, or living here), all poetry within our covers has a claim to the South because it is published here. The magazine has a tradition of including poets from other regions and other countries. We are looking for a great mix of styles and voices that will appeal to our audience and breathe new life into the poetry of the South.

Voluntary Fees: This project accepts voluntary fees.

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.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
