Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Thuya, an aromatic wood of the coniferous variety, once used for ritual burnings, is assumed to be derived from the Greek word thuein, meaning to sacrifice, and is referenced in The Book of Kings as the wood Solomon used to build pillars and harps. Thuya Poetry Review is a non-profit unincorporated association dedicated to publishing the highest quality craft of both emerging and established poets. In adherence to our educational provisions, we select a youth writer to intern as an associate editor for each issue. If you would like to apply for the associate editor position, contact us at [email protected]

Submissions Policy
Please read all of the following policies carefully before submitting your work: Submit only one document per issue, containing up to, but no more than, 5 poems. Submissions should be formatted as a word document: .doc or .docx. Submissions not formatted in the way specified will not be considered. Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but notify us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere by adding a note on the submission. We only consider previously unpublished work. Work that has appeared elsewhere, including social media posts, is not accepted. If for some reason you are unable to submit via submittable, please email your submission to [email protected] with the subject line “ATTN Editors”. Thuya Poetry Review acquires first serial rights and non-exclusive reprint rights. Publication rights return to the author post-publication. We pride ourselves as being one of a small group of journals that does not require a submission fee. We pay our contributors. Compensation will likely be nominal—we are, after all, a non-profit—our budget is contingent upon donations received, which varies annually, and therefore so does the pay-scale. If your work is accepted, we will disclose the projected payment amount in the notification. We pay contributors via PayPal, Venmo, or Check.
