Plume Poetry Journal

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Please review our preferences at before submitting. 

Each submission should include no more than three pieces. 

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, provided you inform the Plume staff immediately upon acceptance elsewhere. 

Only unpublished work will be considered.  Plume Poetry  claims First North American Serial Rights, rights revert to the author upon publication.  In addition, we reserve the right to reprint poetry in anthology form. 

Plume encourages international submissions.  However, authors submitting work in languages other than French, Italian, Spanish, or German should provide their own translations along with the translator's name for each piece. 

We will respond as promptly as possible with the disposition of your piece, although "promptly" might mean a few weeks or several months, depending on the volume of submissions and our own schedules.

Given the increasingly high volume of submissions, we at Plume will read new submissions exclusively between January15 -- March 15, and September 15 -- November 15. Submissions received outside of these periods will not be read. We look forward to reading your poems, however, in these months.
