FIELD: Contemporary Poetry and
FIELD is published twice yearly, in spring and fall. We
accept submissions August through April and usually reply within six
weeks, though occasionally we may take longer. Please keep
in mind that FIELD is one of the most selective small poetry
journals in the country. We suggest you familiarize yourself
with our journal before submitting.
FIELD accepts poetry only. Please do not send simultaneous submissions. Translations are welcome if publication
permission has been acquired from the author of the original
Poems (2-6 at a time) should be submitted through our online
Manager. If you previously submitted work via
snailmail, it will be read and replied to as soon as possible;
please do not re-submit it online.
Manuscripts are considered for the FIELD Poetry Series only
We are not currently considering manuscripts for the FIELD Translation Series. There are two books of translation already in the pipeline, and beyond that the series may be suspended or ended. Thanks for your interest, and best of luck.
