We welcome submissions to the archive, but we must insist that all submissions follow these guidelines. Violating our terms will probably mean that a poem will NOT be added to the archive.
Please note that we must request permission to re-print every poem that is submitted from the poet, publisher, or copyright holder. Unfortunately, do to rights and licensing issues, we will not be able to publish every poem that we would like to publish.
You MUST provide the following information:
- Author’s Full Name
- Poem Title
- Publication Information (publisher, year published, copyright notices)
- Your E-mail Address (so we can contact you if necessary)
The source of the poem (item 3) is wherever the poem may be found. If in a book, you should list the book title, publisher, and year. Ditto with a magazine (replace book title with magazine title - magazine publisher may be omitted). The source may also be in the form of an Internet link. In that case you must provide the URL (http://www.SomeWebsite.com, for example).
We do not accept poems from unpublished authors so please DO NOT SUBMIT YOUR OWN WORK. It will NOT be added to the archive. If you would like to publish your own work with us, you may either:
- Join our discussion forums and post a poem in the “Members’ Poetry Post” section, or
- Submit your work to our poetry journal The Plagiarist.
The “Year” on the submission form (or in the submission template) should be the year of the Current Volume from which you are quoting the poem.
You may submit poems by entering them into our online submission form.
