We are looking for short and long poems, narrative and experimental. Downloading past issues will offer the most useful indication of our interests.

All poetry submissions must be previously unpublished.

Submissions that have been offered simultaneously to other publications will be considered, as long as your submission is promptly withdrawn upon acceptance elsewhere.

Please send no more than three poems at once, within a single file.

We will attempt to respond to all poetry submissions within three months, possibly sooner.

AUTHOR RIGHTS: If accepted, The Brooklyner is granted first North American serial, promotional, archival, and non-exclusive anthology (web and/or print) rights. Copyright reverts to the author upon publication. If the selected work is subsequently published in another venue, we ask that The Brooklyner be sourced as first publication.

NOTE: Unless you indicate otherwise in your cover letter, your submission will be considered for publication on the web – which may include feature in an online issue – and for publication in the print journal.
