Submit a poem

Contributions to Poem and Poet are most welcome.

What you get from Poem and Poet:

  • An opportunity for your work to be seen

  • Possible constructive comments from other poets

  • Contact with like-minded authors and their poems

  • A chance to get seen by publishers

We don't give out your personal details - anyone who wishes to contact you does so via Poem and Poet in the first instance so you can be confident that your personal data is not going to be abused. This is particularly important for parents of younger poets (please make sure that the contact email address you give is that of an adult).

Please note that poems which are not accompanied by a quantifiable 'story' will not be accepted. Sorry, but to do otherwise would defeat the purpose of this site.

Here are a few simple rules.

Please read carefully and check the box below if you accept them all in full and wish to continue with your submission.

  1. That it is all your own work.

  2. That the poem has not been previously published - you may publish your poem elsewhere 28 days or more after it has appeared here. All submissions will be checked and summarily rejected if this is not complied with.

  3. That if you are not aged 16 or over, you are submitting your poem with the permission of a parent or guardian.

  4. That you own the copyright and that there are no restrictions on the publication of this work. By submitting the poem you are allowing Poem and Poet to freely display it on this website but you are not relinquishing copyright which rests with you at all times.

  5. That the work does not contain any profanities, references to contentious issues or is generally likely to inflame or offend.

  6. That the work could not be construed libelous by reference to the whole or part of the work.

  7. That it is agreed that the final decision on whether to include the poem or not is final and rests exclusively with Poem and Poet as does the choice of the section in which the poem is featured.

  8. That by submitting the poem and story you accept that no payment shall be forthcoming from Poem and Poet.

  9. That it is agreed that Poem and Poet may without notice or warning remove individual poems and their stories.

  10. That it is agreed that Poem and Poet may make minor spelling or grammar corrections to your work if necessary. This also includes changing the title if it is not clearly related to the subject of the poem.


By checking the box below, you confirm the foregoing.
