Shō Poetry Journal

Call For Submissions
As an Arizona-based journal, Shō welcomes submissions from poets who identify as Native American or First Nations.
We nominate select works for major prizes.
What to submit
1. Submit up to five unpublished poems at a time. Please include page numbers and your name on every page.

Your cover letter should include the titles you are submitting and a third-person bio (60 words or less).
– If your poem is ‘after’ another poet, please name the poem it’s after, or provide any relevant details in your cover letter.
Simultaneous submissions are fine as long as you specify this in your cover letter and send us a message through Submittable if your work is accepted elsewhere.
Response time
Our average response time is 2 weeks. We attempt to respond to all submissions within one month or less.
Shō is a print journal. Payment is one contributor’s copy. Authors also receive a discount on the purchase of extra copies.
