Thank you for your interest in Poecology. We accept submissions year-round. Please read the following guidelines carefully.
- Submit online for free through Submittable. We no longer read submissions by email.
- Submit up to 10 pages of unpublished poetry, fiction, or nonfiction in one file. At this time, we do not consider previously published work.
- Please include a short bio in the separate box on the submissions page.
- Submitted work should focus on place-based, environmental, and/or ecological themes. These themes can be treated directly or abstractly. Place-based work that is accepted for publication in Poecology will also appear on the Literary Locator.
- Experimental work, international writers, and marginalized perspectives are encouraged.
- Simultaneous submissions are ok, but please contact us through your Submittable account if your work is accepted elsewhere.
- Please wait for a reply before submitting again.
- If your work is chosen for publication, we ask for first electronic serial rights. All rights revert to the author(s) after publication.
- Unfortunately we are unable to offer compensation for the work we publish.
Our response time is currently 3 to 4 months. If 6 months have passed and you have not heard from us, feel free to query. Our staff is small and we read every submission carefully.
