About

We hope you’re well and staying safe and healthy. Lily Poetry Review Books has decided to create a special edition print anthology, Voices Amidst the Virus, and wish to invite you to submit poetry or prose you have been writing or have been wanting to write surrounding Covid-19. We aim to examine our current reality through the perspective of poets from around the country, to build a document of first-hand testaments to carry us into the future. We seek poetry that engages with any aspect of the Covid-19 pandemic, personal or political, related to the hardships as well as the unexpected joys. Whether from the perspective of a parent, a student, an employee, a patient, a caregiver, a healthcare provider, or simply a human being, we want to highlight voices that are honest and speak to this shared experience.

Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for all submissions, and does not offer monetary payment for accepted submissions.

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.
