Editorial Focus

Radar Poetry currently publishes three issues each year: the Winter Issue, the Summer Issue, and the Conistion Prize Issue.

“A writer-friend of ours once said, ‘Great poems make everyone sick.’ We believe the most successful poems keep you up at night and follow you all day. They might even feel unsettling or unnerving. That's because great poems make you question everything you thought you knew. We are looking for work that has that effect on us.”—the editors

Tips From the Editor

Please send three to five poems in a single document through our submissions manager at www.radarpoetry.submittable.com. Be sure to include a cover letter with a brief bio in the comments box, but remove all identifying information from the poems themselves. Visit our website for detailed guidelines.
