The Elevation Review

Type Of Organization
Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
The Elevation Review is, now, a biannual publication featuring all facets of poetry. We believe that every person has the ability to reach the next level, so we strive to promote writers locally, regionally, nationally, and globally. We want poetry that breathes the words on each line—poetry that challenges, rattles the cage, and breaks free. We look for poets who are quiet but have earth-shaking stories to tell. If you have something to say, we want you to write it…and submit it. Poetry saves lives, including yours and ours, so don’t leave it in your notebook. Put it out for the world to see. We believe in you.

Submissions Policy
We accept free submissions of poetry year-round at [email protected] Please include the following when submitting poems: Title—This includes your first and last name + Poetry Submission (ex., Jane Doe - Poetry Submission). You have the option to submit up to 3 poems at a time in a single attached file. We will not accept previously published poems, including ones from social media or other blogs. Bio—Poets should include a 3rd person bio, any links to personal websites (optional), and an author photo (optional). Send to [email protected] in the same email as your submission. Equality & Inclusion—We love writers from all backgrounds, and we work hard to represent diverse voices. Hate speech, discrimination, and any other negative stance towards another race or culture is unacceptable, and we will not accept work that exhibits such traits. Here, There, Everywhere—Writers of all geographic locations are encouraged to submit. We allow simultaneous submissions (that is, submitting work to more than one online or physical journal), but please email us if one of your poems is accepted anywhere else. Response Time—Please allow 30-60 days for a response. If you have not heard from us regarding your submission in 90 days, please reach out to inquire about the status of your submission. Please also submit only once per quarter (once every three months). Donations—We are humbled by any and all donations made to The Elevation Review. Donations do not affect decisions made on submission, nor do they determine acceptance or rejection. Your donation helps us to give other writers, like you, the opportunity to be heard.
