We would be honoured to read your work. Please use this form for Word submissions. There are no themes, no restrictions or rules, but we do ask you to read through the guidelines below. If you can’t send a Word document, you can email us any other format. Please be advised we are a small press, and it will take time for us to get back to you, but we always will.
General Guidelines for poetry submissions
* No minimum or maximum word count.
* No simultaneous submissions.
* You keep your rights. We don't care about exclusive or first print rights.
* No photo posts please, we need text only.
* Send a single document with a minimum of 5 poems at a time.
* Put your name, email and your Instagram handle on a cover page.
* We do not accept hard-copy submissions or manuscripts.
* Please don’t submit to the Quarterly anthology again once published.
* Lay the poems out in the way you would like to have them printed.
We print on a 5.5x8.5 inch format so wide poems will have to be narrowed down. Untitled pieces will be getting the title ‘untitled,’ we change American English to British English (because we are based in Europe). We use Title Case caps for our titles.
We are always on the lookout for: essays, articles, book reviews which are related to poetry on our blog. We are also looking for stories behind the poems we have published or interviews with the poets we published. We don’t pay for the articles but will credit you as a guest contributor with a link to your blog / website / instagram. Please send us a Word document with your article, name and website / instagram.
We believe a poet’s job is much like what Salman Rushdie wrote in his novel The Satanic Verses: a poet’s work is to name the unnamable, to point at frauds, to take sides, start arguments, shape the world and stop it from going to sleep.
We like poetry that packs a punch, poetry that tells a personal truth, we don’t shy away from strong language or difficult themes. We don’t like shit that rhymes. We don’t like shit written by egomaniacs, racists, homophobes, sexists, narcissists and the patriarchy, no matter how talented they are.
