SUBMISSION GUIDELINES


Submissions of up to five unpublished, English-language-based poems composed in any poetic genre or form are welcome from poets actively enrolled in a graduate program anywhere in the world.

Submissions are read year-round, and we accept simultaneous submissions. We ask for first publishing rights, with rights reverting to author upon publication. By submitting, you accept that your work may be used or archived on our website as well as in subsequent print or electronic anthologies, and that your work is original. As compensation for publication authors will receive one free copy of the print journal.

Send your poems as a Microsoft Word “.doc” or “.docx” file attachment to foothill@cgu.edu with “poetry submission” written in the heading. In your cover letter please include your name, e-mail address, title(s) of poem(s), as well as the name of the university and program you are enrolled in. Please allow up to three months for a response, though you will usually hear from us much sooner. Thank you and we look forward to reading your work.
