Expedited “Tip Jar” Submission w/ Feedback + 2017 Subscription – March 13, 2017
Due to the overwhelming popularity of our past tip jar submission periods, we’re back with even more incentives!
Here is how it will work:
- Submit up to 5 poems
- Receive an expedited response of no less than 500 words of feedback from our editorial team,
- Within 10 days…
- Receive the April 2017 Issue 5 mailed immediately upon receipt of submission and the October 2017 Issue 6 mailed in mid-September for a complete 2017 subscription.
- The fee for this special “tip jar” reading is $20, and will run through June 1, 2017.
- Pittsburgh Poetry Review will re-open to free submissions on August 1, 2107.ALL SUBMISSIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED FOR PUBLICATION
While we will always have free open periods, we have decided to open this up to provide an opportunity for those of you who weren’t ready to submit during the open reading period, and for those of you who would like an expedited response with a little bit of constructive feedback (what we liked best, what’s working, what isn’t, and overall impressions our editors have of your work), AND to be able to get a subscription to boot!
PLEASE NOTE: While all submissions will be considered for publication, we do not make any promises regarding publication based on revisions and edits suggested in the feedback, though we will consider revised submissions in the next open reading currently scheduled to begin August 1, 2017. If you are re-submitting revised work at that time, please note this in your cover letter.
Our usual submission guidelines below still apply.
Please submit up to 5 poems in a single .doc or .docx file.
Please do not put any identifying info in the file, but in the “Cover Letter” portion of the form. Do not use a file name with your name in it.
Simultaneous submissions are fine. Please notify us as quickly as possible if your poem is placed elsewhere but inserting a note on your submission in Submittable..
We prefer shorter (1 to 2 pages) poems, but we will consider any length with a query first. In addition, we are particularly interested in series of poems and linked poems. We are willing to publish several pieces from single poets. Collaborative work is welcome too.
If your work is selected, you will receive one contributor’s copy. Due to very high overseas shipping rates, International (including Canada) poets will receive a PDF of the issue.
If your work is accepted at PPR, you agree to grant us First North American Serial Rights, plus the rights to reprint in any future anthologies. Upon publication all rights revert back to the author. You agree that if your poem(s) subsequently appears elsewhere (in print or online), you will give due credit to PPR as the place of first publication.
By submitting, you understand that we may use the full text of accepted poems or excerpted sections on our web site, on social media, and for other promotional materials.
This submission period will run from March 13, 2017 to June 1, 2017. We reserve the right to end the reading period early, suspend, or extend it, depending on submission volume. Poems must be previously unpublished in print or online, including personal blogs, websites, or social media.
If your work has been published in PPR, please allow one year to pass before submitting again.
