From the Poets & Writers Magazine guidelines:

Our editorial content is divided into the following four sections. 

News & Trends: brief articles (500-1,200 words) that keep our readers abreast of pertinent information in the writing and publishing industries.

The Literary Life: essays (1,500-2,500 words) on the more contemplative aspects of writing, ranging from creative process to the art of reading.

The Practical Writer: advice and how-to articles (1,500-2,500 words) that offer nuts and bolts information about the business of creative writing.

Features: profiles of and interviews with (2,000-3,000 words) contemporary writers who reflect the rich diversity of current American literature. Other features include articles and essays (2,000-3,000 words), frequently grouped into special sections, that provide an in-depth look at subjects of interest to creative writers, such as writers conferences and residencies, small presses, regional writing, and the distinctions of genre.

We do not publish original fiction or poetry.

We do not publish book reviews.

We do not accept queries made over the phone.

We rarely cover genre fiction, such as mysteries, mainstream science fiction, romance novels, and children's literature, nor do we cover screenwriting and playwriting.
