Submission Guidelines

Unsolicited manuscripts of no more than five poems are wel­comed but must be accom­pa­nied by a stamped, self-addressed enve­lope for con­sid­er­a­tion. Birmingham Poetry Review does not accept submissions during the summer (May 15 through September 1). We can­not honor International Reply Coupons. At the present time, we do not accept elec­tronic sub­mis­sions. All rights revert upon publication.

Pay is one copy of the Birmingham Poetry Review. Authors should sub­mit three to five poems, with­out cover let­ters. Be absolutely cer­tain that you enclose suf­fi­cient postage on your SASE if you would like us to return your work. We accept simul­ta­ne­ous sub­mis­sions. However, please con­tact us imme­di­ately if a poem you have sub­mit­ted to us is accepted else­where.

We usu­ally report on sub­mis­sions within one to three months, and we occa­sion­ally com­ment on rejections.

Send all sub­mis­sions and cor­re­spon­dence to:
