Send us up to four poems of any length, all in one file. Please only submit twice per calendar year.

We want each issue to feature a diversity of poets, in terms of both identity and style.

We accept and encourage simultaneous submissions.

Don’t send us anything that has already appeared in print or online; we ask for First North American Serial Rights and that you acknowledge Lost Pilots in the event of subsequent publication.

Don’t send us anything racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic, exploitative, toxic, etc.

We will attempt to respond to your submission much quicker than average.

If we have not responded to your sub within two months, it means your poems are still under consideration.

Sadly, we are unable to ship contributor copies internationally (outside of the US).

Please submit no more than twice per calendar year. Please wait at least a year after an acceptance to submit again.
