Submission Guidelines

Before you submit a poem, please read the manifesto because it describes Pismire's aesthetic. A poem—regardless of quality—that does not require a recitation to reach its telos is best suited for another journal. If you believe your poem does meet the conditions, though, follow these instructions:

1. Call (404) 939-1350.
2. After the beep, recite your poem. Hang up.
3. Email your poem and biographical note to pismirepoetry(at)gmail(dot)com.


NB: Pismire prefers the submission of single poems, and the recitation should include only the poem’s title and text. No salutations, please.
