OTHER INFO ON REVIEW SUBMISSIONS: Response time is between 1 – 2 months. Payment is $5 (US funds) per review accepted for publication. Payment will be made via paypal.com only. Payment will be made upon acceptance. Reviews will be published in 1-12 months from acceptance. Remember, in the subject heading of your email, type “Poetry Review Submission” to assure that your email isn’t looked upon as junk mail and deleted without being read. Get an idea of what kind of reviews we publish by subscribing to the newsletter first, it’s free.
REPRINTS: Reprints of past published poetry reviews will be considered if you (or the author) hold the rights. Email reprints as above. However, we will not consider reprints of reviews of the submitter’s own book(s) — i.e. please don’t email us a review someone else wrote about your book unless you have the author of the review contact us at the same time giving us permission to reprint said review. Please note, reprints receive no compensation except publication. We prefer original unpublished reviews and those will be given highest consideration. We take one time electronic rights. All rights revert to author after publication.
