We examine all work received and accept that which seems best. We consider original works written in the English language as well as translations of poetry into English. We regret that the volume of submissions received and the small size of our staff do not permit us to give individual criticism.

Does Poetry accept previously published material?
No. We cannot consider anything that has been previously published or accepted for publication, anywhere, in any form. Work that has appeared online is considered to have been previously published and should not be submitted.

Does Poetry pay money?

Calls for Submissions

The Establishment – Are you looking to share your articulate and well-researched the establishment writingjobscanada.camusings on Mesopotamian dinosaurs, the politics of denim, the unexpected relationship between neo-conservatism and feminism, adolescent self-discovery, unlikely animal friendships, sploshing, the plight of restorative justice told through a graphic novel, the sordid history of the salt trade, racial disparity in the criminal justice system, the latest congressional health care death match . . . or anything in between?

Are you a maker? A photographer? A director? A hang-gliding genderqueer rapper? We want your stories, your inspirations, your dogged research and epiphanic insight.

The Establishment is looking to unearth overlooked stories, produce original reporting, and provide a platform for voices that have been marginalized by the mainstream media. And yes, we want your humor, wit, and good old-fashioned satire, too. We publish originally reported features, interviews, long-form journalism, personal essays, and multimedia of all shapes, sizes, and creeds.

The Nitty Gritty

We pay $125 for feature stories, op-eds, and personal essays (800–1,500 words), and $500 for a select few long-form investigative pieces that involve original reporting and at least five interviews (3,000 words). All multimedia submissions are paid for on a case-by-case basis, but we pay everyone an egalitarian rate for every contribution they make.

How to pitch:

To submit a pitch, email us at getestablished@theestablishment.co, including the word “pitch” in the subject line. If the pitch is time-sensitive, please note this in the subject line as well, with the words “Time Sensitive.”

Your pitch should be 2–4 paragraphs in length and as specific as possible. Please include when applicable:

  • A thesis
  • The historical or cultural context of the piece you’re looking to write
  • Why your proposed piece is important
  • Existing research you’re looking to draw from
  • Potential interview subjects
  • Relevant information on a news hook
  • Expected word length

You’re also welcome to submit full-length, previously unpublished articles. When submitting, please include information on the piece in the body of the email.

If you’ve never written for us, include three links to previously published work. Do not send us zip files or Dropbox links — we won’t open them. We of course love publishing first-time writers, but in these cases, any example of writing is appreciated.

We aim to respond to pitches within two weeks. If you do not hear back in this timeframe, we’ve decided not to move forward with your story. We do read all the pitches we receive — honest! — but due to volume, we’re unable to respond to each one.

Other valuable intel:

Our audience is international and we gladly accept pitches from writers around the world. Hyperlocal news, however, is not typically relevant for us.

We love pitches that feature original reporting and research. Personal essays are also in our wheelhouse, but please make sure these will resonate not just with those who know you, but with a diverse readership — take us from the “I” to the universal.

Be as clear and specific as possible in your pitches. Thorough/compelling pitches let us know that the final product will likely be the same.

We are a women-funded-and-run company, but that certainly doesn’t mean we don’t accept pitches from cis men. If you’re pitching us, check out our website to get a feel for what we publish.

We are open to publishing previously published works; rates vary depending on the situation.

True Story – Submissions accepted year round. The Creative Nonfiction Foundation is true story magazine writingjobscanada.capleased to announce that, with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, we’ve started a new monthly magazine. Each issue of True Story will features one exceptional work of creative nonfiction, and is distributed in print and digitally (though not available online).

Submissions should be between 5,000 and 10,000 words long, on any subject, in any style.* Surprise us! The only rules are that all work submitted must be nonfiction and original to the author, and we will not consider previously published work.

We’ll pay $300 on publication and give you 10 free copies of “your” issue.

We’ll do our best to respond to submissions within three months. We can’t promise to consider work submitted for True Story for any of CNF’s other projects or publications—but we reserve the right to do so.

Guidelines: Essays must be previously unpublished and no longer than 10,000 words. Multiple submissions are welcome, as are entries from outside the United States. You may submit essays online or by regular mail.

—————————————————————————————————-

New Haven Review – The New Haven Review was founded to be a venue for writersnew haven review associated with the Greater New Haven area and to resuscitate the art of the book review. But mostly, we’re interested in publishing good writing, by which we mean writing we like and want to see more of in this world. We like to see submissions from writers who can claim some connection to Greater New Haven, no matter how spurious, though it’s not mandatory. We also like to see book reviews that are better than the book reviews you usually see out there, for whatever reason. But that said, we mostly publish essays, fiction (of any genre), poetry, and occasionally photojournalism. You might be able to convince us to publish something other than any of these things, if we think it’s really, really good. So write to us and tell us what you’ve got.

NONFICTION AND FICTION

Our nonfiction and fiction editors’ collective taste is maddeningly vague; we just know what we like. We’ve published some things that we think are just terrific examples of the tried-and-true ways of writing as we understand that term, here in the adolescence of the twenty-first century. We’ve also published some things that have a lot of fun with form, conventions, and genre, potentially at the expense of losing a few people, but hopefully to the great delight of others. We’ve published some things because reading them was like drinking a warm cup of cocoa. We’ve published other things because reading them was like swallowing a boxful of tacks, or perhaps binging on chocolate-covered garlic. Although we are extremely unlikely to publish your novel-length manuscript, there are no strict guidelines for length. So far, our shorter pieces tend to run to about 1,200 words; longer pieces run several thousand.

We have switched to Submittable to submit nonfiction and fiction. If you’re interested in submitting, please click here.

When submitting nonfiction, it is an excellent idea to briefly make a pitch as a cover letter. When submitting fiction, we don’t really care about the cover letter, so do whatever you want with that. Entertaining cover letters are fun. Our response time, due to us being a tiny volunteer staff with day jobs and families and hopes and dreams and the like, may range from a few weeks to what will feel like, or may in fact be, several months. We come out twice a year, and the truth is that we sort of have reading periods for each issue, but as they tend to change as our schedules allow, it’s not informative to tell you when they are, and besides, we want you to be able to submit when the mood strikes you, and not according to our own crazy lives. However, if you think you might have fallen through the cracks, please submit again. We won’t hold it against you.

POETRY

Our poetry editors have keen eyes and discerning taste, so send your best work. We want poems that take us somewhere, poems that keep us awake for the entire ride, poems that pay close attention to how we got there. We’ll also consider translations of poems in other languages (space, font, and layout skills permitting, we’d run the original and the English translation side by side). Submit 4-6 poems by clicking here. Be sure to include contact information on every page of your file. You’ll hear from us in two to four months.

PAYMENT, ETCETERA

We pay at least $500 for prose pieces, fiction or nonfiction. We pay at least $25 per poem, and are often amenable to publishing more than one of an author’s poems. Each contributor also gets a couple issues of the journal in which they appear. Our print edition is sleek and handsome, but all of its content appears on this website in electronic form as well, for free, because that’s the way people do it in this day and age.
