We publish 52 poems each year; one per week in the Catholic Poetry Room feature.

Catholics, many of whom are new to poetry.

We accept both new and previously-published poetry and are looking for poems that are accessible to the average Catholic and show a strong connection between faith and everyday life, or break open Scripture in a new way for the reader. Many readers will not have read any poetry since high school. As you consider poems that might fit on the site, consider them through the eyes of someone new to poetry.

There's no compensation for poetry published on the site, although we will include a 200-word bio that includes a link to your website. We can also include attribution for where the poem was originally published. The reach and readership of IntegratedCatholicLife.org is significant.

Call + Response is a literary and arts journal providing a creative hub for new and emerging artists of color. We aim to introduce fresh and creative voices to the world through diverse and original art, poetry, fiction, essays, and reviews.

This journal is a celebration and an exploration made by POC, for POC.

This is a safe place for creatives to be, well, creative. But this is also a hate-free zone. Although we will accept political and mature work with topics like sexuality, gender identity, racism, colorism, sexism, reproductive rights, etc. We will not accept work that explicitly details rape, murder and/or bodily or self-harm.

Teach. Write.

SUBMISSIONS ARE OPEN TO ALL, although I prefer writing that is either written by composition teachers and writing students OR about teaching and learning. I believe that writing students (virtually everyone has been a writing student) need to have a voice in Teach. Write. However, I do request that in your required third-person bio you include your composition teacher experience, if you have any, or explain the impact writing instruction has had on you.

Do not feel that the subject of your piece needs to be about teaching, although I am not opposed to teaching as a theme. I am open to any quality, polished writing. No gratuitous sex, violence or profanity, please.

A mindful awareness of space is at the core of our attention to art. To us, poetry—composition, experience, news of the universe—is fundamental to the study of the placement of people on earth. The question “where are you?" initiates a poetic topology that infuses ideas of interrelation & arrangement with compassion.

If one is interested in publishing with LuNaMoPoLiS, one is encouraged to reach out to either The Lune (poetsonearth.com) or The Little Door (thelittledoorpress.com).

MORIA is a national online literary magazine with an all-student editorial board, based at Woodbury University in greater Los Angeles. We accept poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction from emerging and established writers in the United States and across the world. We publish twice-a-year, in the late fall and late spring.

While we accept all styles — including experimental, hybrid, and conventional forms — we aren’t interested in submissions of light verse, genre fiction, and any piece that references gratuitous violence or exploitative sexual imagery. We’re committed to publishing a diverse range of poets and writers. In our debut issue (2017), 73% of our authors were women and 24% were writers of color. We also published pieces from writers in their 20s to writers in their 70s — and every decade in between. We welcome work from traditionally under-represented groups, including women writers, indigenous writers, writers of color, writers who identify as LGBTQ, and writers with disabilities.
