The Adriatic: Now Seeking Poetry Submissions

The Adriatic is a new poetry journal launched in 2020, with the goal of creating opportunities for both emerging and established poets. They hope to provide a publishing platform without barriers. That’s why they don’t charge fees, and they don’t require poets to have previous publications. They publish poetry from around the world.

The Adriatic is published four times a year online, and each themed issue includes original artwork by an in-house artist. Previous themes include “ocean,” “home,” “mind & body,” and “pride.”

Right now through August 22, The Adriatic is seeking sci-fi themed poems. Poems may be written in any language, as long as an English translation is included.

Poets may submit up to three poems, three pages or fewer each. All poems must respond to the current theme: “sci-fi.” To create opportunities for unpublished poets, The Adriatic reads submissions blind.

The Adriatic accepts submissions via email, not online or by post. They don’t accept simultaneous submissions, and they don’t accept previously published work. Poets may submit only once during each submission period.

The Adriatic only accepts submissions that adhere to the guidelines they’ve posted online. Please read these guidelines in full before submitting.

If you would like to learn more or submit to The Adriatic, please visit their website here and here.
