Editorial Focus

Catholics, many of whom are new to poetry.

Tips From the Editor

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 is significant.
