Poetry Book Reviews for Blog

For publication on the website only…

500-800 words. You must not personally know the poet. It is ok if you have met them somewhere, but not ok if you have had them over to your place for dinner or if they are married to your sister. You cannot quote more than 20 lines from the book. The purpose of this is to encourage learning about new poets, not to find unbiased reviews (which don’t really exist).

Purchase Our Chapbook and Submit Yours

Open again! The free chapbook submission period is over, but you can now submit and support our authors at the same time.

We often offer feedback on some submissions, but cannot guarantee that we will always have comments for every manuscript.
