Articles and Commentary Submission: Guidelines

Please read the following submission guidelines carefully before sending in your articles and commentary. We reserve the right to edit the submissions where needed.

1. Submission Themes:
Articles can be about the art of poetry, its relevance today, its history, and how it is being used in societies or institutions. Articles can also be on philosophical thought or conflict transformation. Commentary on poems, videos, poets, poetry events or news stories related to poetry are welcome. These are general guidelines.

As a non-profit project, at this point, Global Poetry does not pay in return for submissions. However, the chosen and published works will get an international outreach to over 120,000 website visitors from around forty-five countries of the world.

We only accept submissions for which the author is the sole legal copyright owner. The copyrights of all the submissions will remain entirely with the individual authors. However, by sending in submissions, the authors must understand that they will be granting online publishing rights to Global Poetry, and the authors are free to publish the same poems elsewhere.
