POETRY CEMETERY Seeks Submissions.

Poetry Cemetery, an online magazine starting its 4th year, is looking for submissions.

Show me your cemeteries, and I will tell you what kind of people you have.—Benjamin Franklin

We think the same holds true for a society's poetry. Come check us out!

Poetry Cemetery always welcomes unsolicited poetry submissions from both published and amateur poets alike. Feel free to send us your best work at any time...just be sure you follow the rules/guidelines below:

  1. Send a maximum of 3 poems for consideration per issue.

  2. PROOFREAD your work before you send it.

  3. Send your poems in the body of the email...NOT as attachments. Also, please be sure you include titles (even if the title is "untitled"), and be sure we can distinguish the end of one poem from the beginning of the next.

  4. Please let us know if the poems you've sent us have been published elsewhere; it's OK by us, just let us know where so we can properly credit the other publication.

  5. Please do not send anything that is excessively vulgar, pornographic, or otherwise offensive to the masses. We believe that every art form has its place in the world...but this is not the place for overtly offensive material.

  6. Please include a short bio-- 100 words or so.
  7. Don't forget your name and at least the city and state where you live.

By sending us your poetry, you are granting us publication rights for our website, and confirming that you have the rights to allow us to publish your work.

All work remains the property of the author--we merely ask that you give us credit if the piece is republished in the future.


We are also seeking artwork to decorate our pages. If you would like to help us decorate our pages, please send us your artwork in JPEG format only, as an attachment to your email.

Please, send all submission to POETRYCEMETERY@GMAIL.COM.

We will strive to respond within 4 weeks.

We've risen from the grave! Actually, the lid hadn't closed yet before John allowed me to step in as editor. As a fan of PC, I appreciated John's excellent stewardship of this magazine—I hope I can continue providing a safe haven for poets, especially previously unpublished poets, while still offering an entertaining venue for poetry lovers.

I think the same holds true for a society's poetry. I will no doubt keep many of the things that attracted me to the site—I may change a few as we go along—and hopefully John Nashville, our Editor Emeritus, will serve as a Guest Editor and contributor, from time to time.

In the meantime, click on CURRENT ISSUE, John's last; check out the new submissions guidelines, and come back and check out our January issue, coming soon!
