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
2. PROOFREAD your work before you send it.
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.
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
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
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.
