Poetry Hi-Fi encourages
poetry submissions. However, we hope that you read through the site
first before you submit any work. We have no exact preferences to form
or content. We want poetry that takes risks with language, form, or
That said, we
do no want religious verse, sing-song greeting card rhyme, sentimental
love poetry, or inspirational verse. Also please save your political
dogma. Don't preach; we're not interested. Remember too that this isn't
a workshop site. We're not here to stroke egos or to give detailed critiques
of why we accept/reject a poem. If you can't deal with rejection, we
suggest you surf elsewhere.
Currently we are
accepting digital submissions only. To accelerate the process, please
fill out the submission form below. Make sure you provide an e-mail
address for contact information. It is the only way we will respond
to your submissions.
Begin by selecting
which section of Poetry Hi-Fi you want to submit work to: Poetry, Round
3 SLAM!, or Links. Include your name, and e-mail or contact information
with your submission. Include your submission in the text box provided.
If you prefer to send attached ASCII text files via e-mail, please send
them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once we receive your work, we will
try to respond to you as quickly as possible. Please keep in mind
that it can take up to 6 weeks for a response. We regret to say
that at the moment your only payment is publication.
Currently we are
most in need of work for the Poetry SLAM! section of Round 3. We are
also interested in receiving reviews of poetry books. Please keep them
300 words or less. If you wish to subit poems to the Poetry section,
please submit 3-5 poems.
