The New York Quarterly was established in 1969 by the late William Packard out of a growing concern for the pure craft and technique of poetry writing. Every issue of NYQ includes the best cross-section of contemporary poetry, a Craft Interview with an outstanding poet on the general subject of style and prosody and technique, informational articles on poets and poetry — materials of lasting value to the practicing poet.

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.
