Editorial Focus

Poetry South is an international journal that considers all kinds of poetry. Though we pay particular attention to writers from the American South (born, raised, or living here), the magazine has a tradition of including poets from other regions and other countries. We are looking for a great mix of styles and voices that will appeal to our audience and breathe new life into the poetry of the South.

Tips From the Editor

Submit 1-4 poems in a Word formatted file. Paste a brief bio (500 characters or less) into the bio field. 
Please include your name at the beginning of the file, and do not use spaces or punctuation.
To avoid confusion, please avoid naming your submission file with names like PoetrySouth, FourPoems, or PoetrySubmission (unless you also include your name).
