Submissions for No. 5 are 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.
