Do not submit here! This project is permanently closed to submissions (November 2020). We provide the following information as an archive.


A language variety (or lect) is a derivation of a parent language that can include localized languages, dialects, creoles, pidgins, and other emergent branches. English is perhaps the world's first true Lingua Franca, and its imperial history/current versatility has led to varieties all over the world. The Pinch wants to recognize and publicize poetic forms that challenge and celebrate the place of contemporary English language poetry. We want your poetry. We want your English too.

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.
