Poetry East has an open submission policy. You may submit 5-8 poems for review, along with a cover letter. Manuscripts should be typed in Garamond font (size 11), with only one poem appearing on each page. Please include your name, address, and contact information (phone number and/or email). Use #10 envelopes; manuscripts will not be returned unless accompanied by a self-addressed, stamped envelope with sufficient postage. We allow simultaneous submissions when acknowledged as such. Please allow up to four months for a reply.
We do not accept email submissions, nor do we respond by email to submissions not accompanied by a return envelope (SASE).
Please send all submissions to:
