Call for Submissions

Want to publish your poems, but not sure where to start? Here’s how to navigate the info on my site . . .

Welcome!

I’ve been posting poetry related information on my blog almost daily since October 2014. Below is a summary of the types of information I post, where, and how to access it quickly. If you are looking for information on how to write, publish, or participate in the larger poetry community, please contact me here and I’ll do what I can to find the info and share it in an upcoming post.

Here’s how to find what you are looking for…

MAIN MENU –  at the top of the page & includes the obvious stuff:

My Poetry – a list of my published poems and links so you can check them out and my Chapbooks – the two chapbooks I’ve published and links so you can read them. There’s also a page for NaPoMo – National Poetry Month of course! This menu includes links to my past NaPoMo projects with summaries and such.

About Me – a resume of sorts, my publications, interviews, reviews, awards, and how to contact me.

Poetry Resources – a list of posts categorized by Poetry groups and events listings, Poetry/writing prompts, Self-taught MFA, and Writing resources. Writing resources includes posts for all sorts of writerly information, including: important poetry sites online, how to publish, how to use social media, word generators and other tools, etc. Plus a list of several other great writing/submitting resource sites.

Where to Submit – this is where the magic happens! All of my custom made lists just for poets, plus a quick link to all my submission call posts in order of the date they were posted. Learn where to submit and get paid, where to submit formal verse, found poetry, and reprints, and where to submit internationally.

SEARCH – enter key words to find what you’re looking for

CATEGORIES – The right hand side of the screen will give you anything else you might need. “Post Categories” has a drop-down list for all my posts categorized by topic. Topics include:

ARCHIVES – select a previous month to read past posts

WRITING RESOURCES – some of my favorite online resources

And of course, back up at the top you can follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and WordPress to make sure you never miss an update!

  1. Just a note to say ‘thank you’ for the amazing resources and encouragement and, yes, inspiration to keep writing – that you provide.  Here I am, 72 years old, graduated as an English major from Wellesley in 1969, then on to Johns Hopkins Writing Seminars Program with Elliott Coleman in 1970  — still writing and publishing — and able to do this because of wonderful emails that come to me from a poet who understands how important, how essential, this act of writing and the thinking surrounding it, truly is.   Gratefully, Barbara Simmons

  2. Hello Trish,

    I am Jay Gandhi.
    I have been following the Submission calls on the “No Fee Calls for Poems” page on Facebook.
    I have been writing since a long time but submitting is something new. Your page is a very good place to find out the places which can be a home for my poems. I also downloaded your chapbook “Almost famous.” I plan to read it in a couple of days time. Thank you for all the help. Slowly and steadily I am getting there. Like every poet I am facing my share of rejections. But there have been acceptances too! I am enjoying this journey and all thanks to you.

  4. Trish, It’s like you read my goddamn mind! Seriously! I was just driving home from taking my Beloved to work, and thinking about how I’d like to get my poems organized into one website that works, and maybe start reading them aloud. Besides the many many resources you share, thank you so much for THIS post with the STRUCTURE you use. It gives me a starting point to say ohhh, I get it! That’s what I need.

    Thank you for answering my prayers so very quickly!

    Amy
