Poetry Quarterly is a poetry journal with a focus on modern poetic style. We accept submissions of all subject matter. The purpose of Poetry Quarterly is to publish great poetry. That’s it. – We do not care about the popularity of a poet, or past accomplishments. We are writers who love poetry for the sake of the form and message. Great writers and great poetry go hand in hand. We pledge to only publish what we find most worthy and to give our readers the finest literary composition possible.

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.
