OUR CURRENT READING PERIOD ENDS AT 11:59 PM EST ON WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2018.
PLEASE READ THIS PAGE CAREFULLY BEFORE SUBMITTING.
Welcome to Tar River Poetry's submission manager. We are currently considering poems for our Fall 2018 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To submit, please send NO MORE than five unpublished original poems as a single file.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. You do not have to make a purchase for us to consider your work for publication, and making a purchase will not influence our editorial decision.
However, 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 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).
For regular "free" submissions, we'll respond no later than May 15th, 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 email@example.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.
