Burrow e-journal 13

A project of Old Water Rat Publishing

We list other projects with similar titles. Please ensure you report any submissions under the correct listing.


We publish poetry (& other micro-texts) that explore what it is to live with good or poor mental health. We are especially interested in where self-care intersects with such priorities as: ecopoetics, postcolonialism, ekphrasis, progressive religion & secularism. We are an inclusive journal that welcomes established poets though we do have a special focus on publishing new & emerging voices (both old & young).

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. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • 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.
