Editorial Focus

Glass Lyre Press invites high quality manuscripts that reflect mature and seasoned writing with masterful imagery, lyricism, and emotional resonance. We are attracted to eloquent and clever writing which also fires the imagination, and most importantly, the rare talent for shining a light on the human condition. Because we believe this kind of work is deserving of recognition, we award two prizes annually to the manuscripts which come closest to this vision.

Tips From the Editor

Full length poetry collections and chapbooks will be considered. A ten-point evaluation system as well as a review method is used to evaluate and select manuscripts. Manuscripts which receive 8 points and above are considered for publication. Ideal manuscripts would have a balance of styles and forms, meaning and depth, beautifully crafted language, and work that is fresh and impactful. Individual poems must stand on their own merit but complement each other, and work together to present a cohesive and well-ordered manuscript. Simultaneous and multiple submissions are allowed. Please inform us immediately upon the acceptance of your manuscript by another publisher.
