PLEASE NOTE: AS OF SEPT 18, SUBMITTABLE INFORMED US THAT WE HAD REACHED OUR MONTHLY LIMIT OF 300 FREE SUBMISSIONS, AND THEY HAVE DISABLED OUR FREE SUBMISSION CATEGORIES (including Current Subscribers). WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.


NOTE: If you live outside the U.S. and want a sample issue or a subscription, you must use one of the international submission categories below.


Welcome to Tar River Poetry's submission manager. Our Fall 2018 issue is full. We are currently considering poems for our Spring 2019 issue.

To submit, please send NO MORE than five unpublished original poems as a single file. PLEASE DO NOT upload poems individually. Simultaneous submissions are fine as long as you notify us immediately if a poem is accepted elsewhere. 

We believe that writers of poetry should also be readers of poetry. With your submission you may conveniently purchase a one- or two-year subscription to TRP, or a single sample issue. 

If you purchase a subscription or sample issue, or if you are a current subscriber, we will expedite our editorial decision. We promise to respond with a "yes" or a "no thanks" within one week (7 DAYS) of receiving your submission. Please submit by selecting the appropriate category below. 

If you prefer, you may purchase a simple "expedited decision" without subscribing (see below). 

If you were one of the first 300 "free" submissions during this reading period, we'll respond no later than December 15, 2018. 

You should receive an auto-reply from us immediately after sending your work. If you don't, please check to be sure your email spam-blocker does not have submissions@tarriverpoetry.com blocked.

We look forward to reading your work.

PLEASE NOTE: If we have featured your poetry recently, please wait a year after publication before submitting again. 

CURRENT READING PERIOD ENDS AT MIDNIGHT EST ON SUNDAY 30 SEPT 2018.
