Submit to Our Journal


Our submission guidelines are currently being rewritten. We ask that you save your submissions until we post the new guidelines no later than 31 October 2019. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.


Attention students in 6th-12th grade: If you create poetry and live in New Hampshire, we’d love to read what you’re writing:-) Submissions through the form on the “Student Poets” page of The Poets’ Touchstone blog will be considered on a rolling basis. Please submit only one poem at a time and wait until you’ve heard from us about whether or not it will be included in The Poets’ Touchstone before sending in another. If you do not have your own email address, please ask an adult you trust to be your point of contact through their email. If your poem is selected for publication to our print journal, we will need your postal address so that we can mail you a copy.

Rights for All Submissions

All rights revert to authors upon publication, but if you do resubmit elsewhere, please credit The Poets’ Touchstone.
