We read submissions on a rolling basis and are not a paying market. Send us one to six poems, pasted in the body of an email, preceded by a cover letter. Please no attachments; we will not open attachments. Please include a bio written in the third person. Please indicate POETRY SUBMISSION on your subject line. Submissions without "Poetry Submission" in the subject line will be not be read. Submit to [email protected] Simultaneous submissions are allowed. If your work is accepted elsewhere please inform us right away, so we can congratulate you! We aim to respond to all submissions within 30 days of reading. Please wait until you hear back from us to resubmit. If your work is accepted at Divot, you agree to grant us First North American Serial Rights, all archival rights, plus the rights to reprint in any future anthologies. Upon publication all rights revert back to the author. You agree that if your poem/s subsequently appears elsewhere (in print or online), you will give due credit to Divot. Divot seeks fresh imagery and surprising gut-punch lines (metaphorical slaps only:) and we want only literary poetry: no inspirational poetry, and do not send poems that rely soley on abstract language. We prefer poems that will fit on one page. Established and new poets are encouraged to submit.
