Poetry Breakfast 23


Each morning, Monday through Friday, Poetry Breakfast publishes a new poem. Saturday we offer a new short play “matinée” to read. Poetry Breakfast also hosts occasional online events such as poetry reading and workshops. At Poetry Breakfast, our goal is to be a sort of literary soup kitchen. Each day we deliver a poem or short play script that nourishes our humanity. Our focus is on the truth of how we are all the same on the inside. We aim to help people begin their day by helping them connect to our collective humanity through poetry and short plays. Anyone anywhere in the world can stop in at our website for a literary bite to eat.

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.

  • 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.
