Poetry Submission Guidelines
Wherewithal seeks poems of any length and form. We like images that leave us breathless, and poems that show attention to cadence, technique, and craft. Our aim is to be a magazine of diversity in its poetry and its poets.
You must submit via our Submittable page with your poems in a single .doc, .docx, or .rtf file. Include a 50-100 word bio in the Cover Letter section. A photo to accompany your poem(s) will be asked for upon acceptance.
Do not submit anything that has been published elsewhere, whether it be in print or on the internet, including your blog or Facebook. We accept simultaneous submissions, but please notify us if your piece is accepted elsewhere.
We are a paying market. It is only a token payment of $10 per poem. We think your work has value, and we wish we could show it with more, but we are young and poets as well.
We hold First North American Serial Rights, and all rights return to the author upon publication. We do ask that you mention us in reprints of pieces first published here. We could use the publicity.
Our aim is to honor great work by being quick with our responses.
We publish 2 times a year with a compilation of the best work in Print once a year and an annual contest in summer.
Thank you for considering our magazine.
Submissions are rolling and will not close any day of the year.
