Dust Poetry is a new online poetry magazine that is currently seeking submissions for its next issue.
And by a new, I mean new – they’ve only been around since January 2020. Since then, they’ve published three issues and are growing their reader base.
Each edition contains work from about fifteen poets. They aim to include a diverse range of voices, publishing both emerging and established poets from around the world.
Dust Poetry can’t currently pay their contributors, but they hope to do so in the future.
How to Submit to Dust Poetry
The theme of this image is “landscape,” and the editor is open to accepting any theme interpretation. However, she does want you to keep the following in mind:
- Email one poem at a time, or a series of short (e.g., haiku) poems together.
- Poems should be unpublished elsewhere except on your blog or social media pages, which the editor is happy to link to.
- There is no fee to submit your work to the magazine.
The submission deadline for this issue is June 30, 2020.
It’s also important to note that Dust Poetry doesn’t own the right to your poems. The copyright remains with the author. They also try to respond to authors within one month.
In addition to the poetry, the magazine is looking to feature photography, illustration, and other artwork on its website. If you have an image that you think perfectly sums up your poem, you may want to send that too.
Good luck to those who choose to submit. Please let me know if you got accepted in the comments below!
Stay safe, everyone.
Until next time.
