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.

We publish many first time or emerging poets.

Ekphrastic writing. All of the poetry and prose we publish in inspired by visual art. 

Read the journal! We love diverse styles of quality writing from all over the world, but if your work doesn't respond to works of visual art, we can't use it. 

If you are someone who loves visual art and loves writing about visual art, we'd love to hear from you.

Surprise us. We want nothing less than to expand and redefine exkphrasis by stretching the concept to its limits. Show us artworks we've never seen, or show us our familiar favourites from a whole new perspective.

We call ourselves an “alternative” magazine; that is to say: our purpose is to promote work that is thought-provoking and unconventional. We want the controversial and the radical, the unhinged and the bizarre; we want the obsessive, the compulsive, the pervasive, the combative, and the seductive. We believe that every work of quality art has a home where it belongs, and for the “alternative,” the Matador Review is a home.

Scrib seeks work that explore the human experience with honesty & authenticity. Spirituality permeates our experiences and is therefore an inherent element in our art. We look for unique work that will connect on a personal level, provoke reflection about our lives, & linger in the viewer’s mind after reaching the end. Your work need not have tidy Sunday School answers or easy resolutions to be published; struggles, complexity, and ambiguity are part of the human experience, too.

Scrib desires to provide authentic art and writing while maintaining Christian values. Any artist or writer might need to portray a variety of beliefs and worldviews to accurately represent the diversity of our world. Scrib draws the line at work that doesn’t show clear respect for the basic tenets of the Christian faith. The topic of sexuality is not off-limits, but we don’t publish graphic sexual content or work that condones sexual activity outside marriage. Swearing should be artistically essential, if used.

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.
