32 Poems welcomes unsolicited poetry year round and accepts simultaneous submissions. We respond quickly though (often within a few weeks) and request that submitters keep that time frame in mind as they submit elsewhere. Poets who have not received a response within 90 days are encouraged to query regarding their manuscript’s status.
As a rule we publish shorter poems that fit on a single page, though we have been known to make occasional exceptions to accommodate remarkable work that runs a little longer. Send no more than five poems in a submission and no more than one active submission at a time. We do not accept translations or work that has been previously published in print or online.
For online submissions we charge a $3 reading fee (waived for current subscribers). This money supports the publication of 32 Poems, which, as an independent journal with an all-volunteer staff, continues to publish only through the generosity of our dedicated readers. Alternatively, we continue to accept fee-free postal submissions at
