If you want to submit a chapbook manuscript, please visit this page.
Submissions for our journal are always open. We publish three issues a year. Our current schedule is January, May, and September. Send us up to 6 poems in a single document. We strongly prefer .doc and .docx files, but you can send other file types (various image files, .pdf, .txt, etc) if you have to, but please try to make it something that can be opened easily on any computer.
Send your work to epigraphmagazine [at] gmail [dot] com. You can send a short informal cover letter if you’d like, but it’s not necessary. We don’t like writing cover letters either! But Please include a BRIEF two or three sentence bio written in the third person. We encourage you to link to your personal site, blog, twitter, etc.
Please submit only once per reading period. We don't accept previously published work. Simultaneous submissions are encouraged, but please send a follow up email to let us know which poem(s) have been accepted elsewhere.
If we publish your work, you give us first publication rights and archival rights. Once published, all rights revert back to you. If your poem(s) end up in a book, chapbook, or elsewhere, we'd appreciate it if you'd mention Epigraph as the original place of publication!
As a final note: Epigraph is against bigotry in all forms. We strive to be an inclusive and welcoming place for everyone, so please don’t submit any content that is racist, sexist, ableist, homophobic, transphobic, etc. We don’t want to read it. If you have a problem with this, don’t submit!
