Editorial Focus

Delta Poetry Review is an online poetry journal committed to publishing exceptional work by new, emerging, and established writers.

Poetry from and about the American delta region and the South is encouraged, but all topics are considered. Submissions are accepted year-round for three issues per year: February, June, and October; the October issue will focus on the Delta region and the South in general.

Tips From the Editor

We do not publish poetry containing racist, sexist, misogynist, or explicit language or anything of a violent or erotic nature. Please wait until you have heard from DPR about one submission before sending another.
