Greetings, PSNH members and poetry enthusiasts!
Our next submission period, for Volume 64, Number 2 of The Poets’ Touchstone, is now open for poetry. The deadline is September 15,11:59 p.m. EDT.
Guidelines are very similar to the last submission period—with the exception of a small submission fee for non-members, who may also submit three poems this time, instead of only one—but please be sure to read everything on the Submittable form before sending us your work. Click here to submit, and be sure to select the correct category (member or non-member). If you are not sure about your membership status, please login to the PSNH website to confirm your renewal date. If you need assistance with this, please email Liane at email@example.com.
As always, we are open to a wide range of forms and styles, but if you’re new to PSNH and would like to see the quality of poems we’ve accepted in the past, feel free to purchase a back issue from our website here.
We also have a new editor on the team: Shoshana Coté! Shoshana has written essays, poetry and a book of translations and discussion questions, Weavings of Departure: Rediscovering the Poetry of Nobel Laureate Nelly Sachs. She enjoys music, microbiology, and novels by Daniel Silva. She is currently fascinated by the survival adaptations of both BA.5 and Donald Trump. She will be joining me (Caitlin) and returning editors Brian Evans-Jones and Amber Rose Crowtree in reading your work this fall. You can learn more about the team on our webpage here.
The submission period for art will open the same day the poetry submission period closes, and run through October 15. There will be only one form for art submissions, but non-members will be expected to select their status and pay the $3 submission fee (yes, we will verify everyone’s membership)!
We look forward to reading and viewing your work!
