Calls for Submissions

Poetry Magazine РWhat kind of work is Poetry looking for? poetry magazine writingjobscanada.ca
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?
Yes. Payment is made on publication at the rate of $10 per line (with a minimum payment of $300), and $150 per page of prose, for first serial rights. All rights will revert to the author upon publication. Authors will also receive two contributor copies of the issue in which their work appears.

How do I submit my work to Poetry?
As of July 2013, we no longer accept paper submissions. We now have an online system for you to send us your work. It will securely send our editors your work and e-mail you a confirmation that it has been received. When you are ready to submit, please visit our submission system at poetry.submittable.com. Your account will be set up during your first submission. There is no need to create an account beforehand.

Once you have submitted your work, you can check the status of your submission by signing into your Submittable account.

What file types can I submit?
Under the “Poetry” category, submit files in one of the following formats only:

Word document (.doc) files

Rich Text Format (.rtf) files

Text (.txt) files

Portable Document Format (.pdf) files

Word Perfect (.ppf) files

We now also have a “Visual Poetry” category which accepts the following: JPEG, TIFF, PNG, PDF, and Word document files.

Please note that submissions are limited to four poems (1 file), and should not exceed ten pages. Poems should be submitted in a single file, with poems separated by titles or page breaks. Please include all writer contact info on the first page of the submitted file.

When can I submit to Poetry?
We accept submissions year round. We ask that you do not make multiple submissions: please wait for a response to your submission before sending new work.

How soon can I expect to hear about my submission?
Out of respect for poets, we are doing everything we can to minimize response time. We will do our best to respond within seven months from the day of receipt, but are sometimes slower in responding. Please be patient! It is our goal to make sure each submission gets a good read. Adhering to our single submission of four poems or fewer at a time will help insure a timely response to your work.

Please ensure that you set your e-mail spam filter to allow mail from both poetryfoundation.org and poetrymagazine.org; otherwise notification regarding your submission may be marked as junk mail.
