The purpose of this semi-annual journal is to publish talented undiscovered poets across the English speaking world and to support and celebrate their writings in a journal that is accepted and respected in the traditional poetry environments. Those published will win entry into the membership of published poets and, as a result of their exposure and acceptance into the poetry world, will gain access into other publishing, speaking and teaching opportunities. They will serve as models of possibility and will offer inspiration to the other poets. Published or unpublished, we are here to help you share your voice and discover your audience. While undiscovered does not necessarily mean unpublished, and previously published poems will be considered, the journal is interested in poems by writers striving to enter the world of published poets. All ages, levels of education and life experience are welcome.

Submissions can be simultaneous. Should your work be accepted elsewhere, please advise us. You will never be asked for a submission fee. Upon publication you will receive three complimentary copies of The Journal. You agree to allow the Journal to use the content of your entries in website and social media and to maintain them in the website archive.

Please use our “Submittable link”. Send a single file containing up to five poems of any length or style, double spaced as a doc or docx file ( pdf is acceptable but not preferred ).  Include a cover sheet containing: your name, postal address, phone number, email address and a very brief biography.

Here’s looking forward to reviewing your work.
