Kenning 6

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


We want your page poetry & spoken word. We want your art. We want you to talk to us! We want you to get involved. To comment. To send us emails when you get excited about things we publish. We want you to know what a kenning is. A kenning is a compound word that (can) have a metaphorical meaning. Rune caller is a kenning for wizard; ring-rich is a generous person; whale-road is the sea. Kenning Journal was founded in 2011 by Devon Miller-Duggan, Kallie Falandays, Kevin Hageman, Anna Sarigianis, and Mike Vignola.

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.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
