Since 1950, the BPJ has been publishing poetry that matters. We are open to a wide range of forms and styles in contemporary poetry. We are always watching for new poets, quickened language, and poems with a fresh purchase on the political or social landscape.

The senior editors read every poem that comes in over the transom. We read year-round; do not charge reading fees during our twice-annual general reading periods; have two contests that require fees, the Adrienne Rich Award for Poetry, and the Chad Walsh Chapbook Series; allow simultaneous submissions; and are conscientious about responding to manuscripts promptly. In return, we ask that you honor our guidelines, listed on our website.

World Literature Today is the University of Oklahoma’s bimonthly magazine of international literature and culture, founded in 1927. The editors welcome submissions on contemporary literary and cultural topics addressing any geographic region or language area. By “contemporary,” we mean that our main focus is on the current literary scene--namely, authors who have been active in the 1990s and 2000s. The bulk of our coverage consists of essays, book reviews, fiction, poetry, and interviews.

We do not generally accept unsolicited poetry or fiction for publication. In terms of creative writing, we especially value translations from other languages but will equally consider work written originally in English. For critical studies of contemporary authors, literary topics, or cultural trends, our preference is for “essays” written in the tradition of clear and lively discussion intended for a broad audience, with a minimum of scholarly apparatus. Please include in your email or cover letter a brief explanation of how your essay would engage or enlarge our notion of world literature in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Prospective contributors are encouraged to consult recent issues of WLT for examples of our preferred style of writing.

Eoagh is dedicated to the idea of reading as a process, the productive chaos of investigative poetic work. We seek to foreground the writing of experimental women, trans, feminist, transfeminist, POC, anti-racist, and LGBT/queer authors. We seek work that explores the acts of attention not just in writing but also in being written. Inspired by the assertion that “reading is a gymnast’s act,” we see readings as embodied, interdisciplinary responses that engage with one’s environment.

There will be one submission period for the journal announced each year. There will also be one reading period for book manuscript submissions announced each year.

To submit work to EOAGH, send: essays, articles, or reviews. Any length is acceptable. We do not currently accept unsolicited poetry submissions. To submit articles, criticism, or reviews, send texts of any length.

The Fiddlehead is open to good writing in English or translations into English from all over the world and in a variety of styles, including experimental genres. We are always happy to see new unsolicited works in short fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry. We also publish reviews, and occasionally other selected creative work such as excerpts from novels and plays. We particularly welcome submissions from Indigenous writers, writers of colour, writers with disabilities, LGBTQQIA+ writers, and writers from other intersectional and under-represented communities.

If you are serious about submitting, read an issue or two to get a sense of the journal. Mailed submissions are accepted all year around; for Submittable, we have two submission periods, Jan. 1st – April 30th and Sept. 1st – Nov. 30th. Simultaneous submissions are okay, but writers may only submit once per calendar year per genre. Please take the time to check out the full submission guidelines.

Established in 1889, Poet Lore is the oldest continuously published poetry magazine in the United States. Poet Lore publishes semi-annual installments of the finest contemporary poetry both by established writers and those breaking into print. We have a mission of discovery at Poet Lore; therefore, every submission is read without regard to reputation by the Executive Editors: Jody Bolz and Ethelbert Miller.

Submit up to 5 poems. Please wait 4 months before entering another submission. We limit the submissions to 5 poems or less because we have a small staff and we make it a priority to have each set of poems reach the hands of our executive editors. Please do not staple manuscripts. Please do let us know if we have met and/or published you before. If submitting simultaneously, please also let us know the moment your poems are accepted elsewhere, via e-mail, so we can move on to other fine work.
