Foundry: Now Seeking Poetry Submissions

Foundry is an online poetry journal exploring the concept of the poem as a made object. They publish poetry from both emerging and established poets, and poems published in Foundry have received the Pushcart Prize, appeared on Verse Daily, and have been selected for Bettering American Poetry.

Since 2016, Foundry has been published quarterly in March, June, September, and December. Each issue contains work from around fifteen contributors and showcases three author interviews investigating how a poem was made.

Foundry reads submissions year-round, and they aim to respond to submissions within two months. In order to consider a diverse body of work, they ask that poets submit no more than once every three months. They pay $10 per poem published in Foundry, and they also promote authors on social media and nominate poets for prizes.

Poets may submit three to five poems along with a cover letter and third-person bio. Foundry accepts a wide range of poetic forms and styles, from lyric to narrative. They like poems that are deeply felt, poems that are as impactful as they are thought-provoking.

They just started accepting essays for publication. They pay $20 per essay.

Submitting authors can read past issues online to get a sense of their style. Foundry is an inclusive literary platform, and they welcome submissions from marginalized poets.

Foundry accepts submissions online, but not via post or by email. They encourage simultaneous submissions, but ask that authors withdraw work published elsewhere. They do not accept previously published work, and they do not publish translations.
