Poetry Open

Our definition of prose poetry leans more toward poetry than prose. We appreciate energy, daring, humor (particularly of the black or ironic kind), and freshness. We admire the prose poems of Rimbaud, Elke Erb, Russell Edson, and Charles Simic. For us, prose poems do not include line breaks. We say that because we get a number of submissions of poems with line breaks. We don't consider those for this publication. NOTE: We have received a number of submissions of poems which aren't prose poems. We're only looking for prose poems. We gotta fever, and the only cure is prose poems.

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.
