Request (Editors only):


At The Poetry Annals, we like to keep records; snapshots of poetry suspended in time. We focus on one poet, and one collection per month, every month (collaborative works are definitely welcome, however). By virtue of this, we’re highly selective, so send us work you love. We want to love it too. We’re looking for collections, not individual poems, so we’ll either take all of it, or none of it. This isn’t meant to put pressure on you at all; we want to see you as an artist, you as a creative entity. We want to understand how your poetry interacts with itself. We’re particularly interested in hearing from those from marginalised backgrounds, whether that be because of race, socio-economic class, gender, sexuality or otherwise. We want the work we publish to be precise, to be diverse, to be powerful. We’d like you to join us.

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.
  • For book publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
