Please send up to 5 poems of any length for consideration for our annual print and/or online issues. (We Print online twice a year, and our print issue includes both online issues and additional work).
We are looking for quality pieces of any form, style, or subject matter. We welcome simultaneous submissions, and have no guidelines for formatting.
We occasionally republish previously published work -- please note in your submission if any portion is previously published.
We are also accepting submissions for our Gods & Monsters Anthology. Learn more HERE.
*By submitting to American Poetry Journal, submitters agree to receive correspondence about future releases and submission opportunities from American Poetry Journal. You can unsubscribe at any time.
We have a small, caring team and read each submission thoroughly. We aim to respond within 7 months, and many times, much sooner.
