331 members set this magazine as a Favorite.

Palette Poetry endeavors to uplift and engage emerging and established poets in our larger community. The world is eager for poets. In 2016, more people spent their hard earned money on poetry books than any other year on record. When times are dark, the world always turns to poets for empathy, for answers, for words, bucking and new. Palette Poetry is here to paint our small part of the world with truth through poetry, as hopeful and eviscerating as truth can be. We have no particular aesthetic vision or mission. Our goal is to simply find and publish the best poetry we can, no matter its roots in craft.

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. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • 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.
