We review poetry on a rolling basis, but ask that you please not submit more than twice in a twelve-month period. You may send up to six poems per submission. Our response time averages two to six months.
We are interested in original, unpublished poetry. We do not consider work that has appeared elsewhere (this includes websites and personal blogs).
We do consider translations, so long as the poem has not been published in English translation before. The original text may have been published elsewhere.
Simultaneous submissions are welcome, provided that you notify us promptly if a poem has been accepted by another publication. NOTE: If you need to withdraw individual poems from consideration, please click on the title of your submission; click on the "Activity" tab; and leave a note detailing which poem(s) should be withdrawn. Please only use the "Withdraw" function if you intend to remove all poems from consideration.
Thank you for your interest in contributing to The New Yorker! We look forward to reading your poems.
