Antiphony: Now Seeking Poetry Submissions

Antiphony is a new online poetry journal and press. According to the editor, they plan to keep their issues small—their first edition features only fifteen poems—so that each piece of writing gets the attention it deserves. And every submission is reviewed by a single editor.

Antiphony accepts submissions from both emerging and established authors year-round, and they aim to respond to all submissions within one month. Poets may submit one to five poems, and should wait at least three months between submissions. Antiphony nominates authors for Best of the Net and The Pushcart Prize.

Antiphony is also open to pitches (300 words or fewer) for reviews, interviews, short and long-form criticism, close reads, and comparative essays. These will be published as supplements to the journal.

They also accept book manuscripts. Before submitting a full-length manuscript, authors should send a five-page excerpt, cover letter, and bio. Book manuscript submissions close on November 1, 2024. Authors of full-length manuscripts chosen for publication will receive a $500 honorarium.

Antiphony accepts submissions via email, not online or by post. They accept simultaneous submissions but ask that authors withdraw writing published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work.

Antiphony only accepts submissions that follow the guidelines they’ve posted online. Please read these guidelines in full before submitting.
