If you have recently submitted to Amsterdam Press or have experience with this market, please submit a comment below. Recent submission response times are always welcome and helpful to other writers.

From the Amsterdam Press guidelines:

Always, always write a cover letter. However, unless you know one of us personally, do not address us personally.

Please send a brief biographical statement with each submission. A couple of credits is fine, and so is mentioning your hometown. But we don’t need to know how your first pet died or how many poems you’ve published. Why? Because we aren’t going to judge you by your bio. We are going to judge you by your work.

We prefer electronic submissions. And we prefer that you send them as a single attachment. Do not send us 10 poems as 10 different attachments. Do not send us your poems in one attachment and a cover letter in another one, and a bio in yet a 3rd. That drives us insane.

If you cannot submit electronically, type your poems in a normal font, at 10-12 point, and in black ink on white paper. Do not staple pages together. Do not scribble on pages, or put sticky notes all over the place explaining things to us. In other words, send us clean copies on white paper and leave the other stuff out. Send us only what we ask for.
