Editorial Focus

Stone Poetry Quarterly (formerly Stone Poetry Journal) is an online poetry journal that publishes poems ranging from the visceral to the cerebral across a full scope of human experience and awareness. They prefer to publish poems that present a diversity of contemporary perspectives and are well-crafted, artistic explorations of language, subject, and image. Decisions regarding all submitted work are communicated within seven days of submission. When appropriate, Stone Poetry Quarterly nominates for the Pushcart Prize.

Tips From the Editor

We have four reading periods; September 1 to October 31; December 1 to January 31; March 1 to April 30; and June 1 to July 31.

Submit on Submittable. Although there is a $3 submission fee, decisions regarding publication are communicated within seven days of submission.

We highly recommend that potential contributors read our past issues (including when the publication was called Stone Poetry Journal) and our Submission Guidelines page to have a sense of the sorts of poetry we publish.
