PoetrySoup Poetry Anthology

PoetrySoup is publishing its first poetry anthology. We are currently accepting submissions for this print publication. The book will be available on in print and eBook format after it's produced, and at the lowest price possible.

Submission Guidelines

  • Poems must be posted on and in English. We do not accept poems via email or postal service.
  • You must be the author of the poem, and you must sign an online release form allowing us to publish the poem.
  • Previously published works are allowed. However, the author must hold rights and/or be responsible for reprint permissions and/or fees. A citation to the original publication must be provided.
  • Poems must be 50 lines or less. We are focusing on shorter poems this time. You can view your poem line count on the edit poem page.
  • Translated works of other authors are NOT acceptable.
  • Poems must be in the correct poetic form.
  • You may submit 1 poem for consideration. Premium Members may submit 3 poems.
  • There is no theme with this first publication. 
  • If accepted, you still own the rights to your poem and can publish it elsewhere. 

Since this will be a fairly large publication, we cannot provide free copies to poets included in the anthology. We will be able to do that in the future with smaller publications. 

How to Submit a Poem for Consideration 

Submission is free, but there is no financial compensation for inclusion in this poetry anthology. Additionally, submission is not a guarantee of acceptance. Premium Members may submit up to three poems, and non-paying members may submit one poem. 

  1. Sign Up for the PoetrySoup account (we do not accept submissions via email or the postal service)
  2. Post a poem on the PoetrySoup website using the Submit Poems page.
  3. After you've posted the poem, go to the My Poems page, and edit the poem you want to submit to the anthology.
  4. Click the Submit to Anthology link/button to submit a poem for consideration to the anthology.
  5. Follow the instructions on the Submit to Anthology page.
  6. That's it. We will let you know if your poem has been accepted for inclusion in PoetrySoup's first anthology.
