The Journal

Submissions to No. 3 now open!

Only writing that has not previously appeared in print or online will be considered.

  • Poetry - Please limit submissions to 5 poems in a single file. Longer poems are welcome.
  • Fiction - Please limit submission to no more than one story. Excerpts from longer works are welcome, as long as they stand alone. 

Acceptable file types: .pdf, .docx, .doc.

There are no restrictions on line or word count.

We do our best to respond within 120 days. If you have not heard from us after that point, feel free to query. Simultaneous submissions are welcome, but please let us know immediately if you have your work accepted elsewhere.

All rights revert to the author upon publication; if subsequently published elsewhere, we kindly request that Poet's Country  receive recognition as the site of first publication. Regrettably, we are as yet unable to monetarily compensate our contributors. All contributors will however, receive a copy of the issue in which their work appears.

Submissions to Poet's Country  are managed by Submittable.

The Country Club

We are currently open for submissions of poetry and fiction to the Poet's Country Club reading series.

  • Poetry - Please limit submissions to 5 poems in a single file.
  • Fiction - Please limit submission to no more than one story.

Acceptable file types: .pdf, .docx, .doc.

Keep in mind our reading time-slots when submitting. Poets read for around 10 minutes; fiction writers read for around 15. We prefer that you submit the work you plan to read.

Our readings take place at the Bowery Poetry Club in New York City. Regrettably, we are as yet unable to monetarily compensate our readers.
