From the Beloit Poetry Journal guidelines:

We seek only unpublished poems or translations of poems not already available in English.

We are open to a wide range of forms and styles in contemporary poetry. We are always watching for new poets, quickened language, and poems that offer a new purchase on the political or social landscape.

We read year-round, do not charge reading fees of any kind, and are conscientious about responding to manuscripts promptly. In return, we ask that you honor our policy of not considering simultaneous submissions.
