How to submit:

  • Please send 1-3 of your unpublished poems to Kate Garrett at Send them in the body of an email, or a Word document – please do not send PDFs.
  • Please, please check your work for typos and spelling mistakes.
  • Please also include a short (no more than 100 words) third-person bio – as factual or funny as you like.
  • While I am not interested in reprints (see above), simultaneous submissions are fine, as long as you let me know ASAP if the work is accepted elsewhere.
  • There is no line limit. There is no specific theme or poetic style. Just send me your gut-stabbing or tear-jerking or I-can’t-breathe-from-laughing words.
  • I only ask for one-time rights – once your work has appeared in Picaroon Poetry, you can do what you want with it. But giving us a credit would be nice.
  • I look forward to reading your work!
