Editorial Focus

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.

Tips From the Editor

Please do not staple manuscripts. Please do not send more than five poems per submission. 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.
