Submission Guidelines

PLEASE READ AND CAREFULLY FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES BELOW.

1 - 3 poems per submission.

No simultaneous submissions.

No previously published poems (unless by invitation).

Response time: Typically, I respond in a week or less; however, it may take up to two weeks.

If you haven't received a response after 3 weeks, feel free to send me an e-mail.

I ask that you submit once every two months at the most.

Paste your submission into the body of an e-mail, type "poetry submission" in the subject line and send to red.eft.review@gmail.com (no attachments).

Short biographies are welcome (written in the third person and no more than 50 words).

I will consider all forms; however, I prefer shorter poems written in free verse.

I do not want to receive the following genres: fantasy, horror, pornography, religious or science fiction.

In addition, do not send anything that promotes homophobia, racism or sexism. In other words, nothing hateful.

All rights revert to the author upon publication.

I am unable to pay contributors.

I look forward to reading your poems.

Corey D. Cook, Editor of Red Eft Review

  1. Hi Corey,
    I read your submission guidelines.
    Do you have a preference for theme in poetry submissions?

  2. Hello, Corey!
    Just wondering: does a post on one's own Facebook page, or on a blog for NaPoWriMo, count as a previous publication?
    Thanks,
    Cheryl

    1. Thanks for your question, Cheryl. I would not consider a poem posted on a personal Facebook page as previously published. That said, I would consider a poem posted on a blog as previously published (especially if it was accepted by an editor or group of editors).

  3. Good morning, Corey:

    Do you accept submissions from writers after they've been published on your site?
