FIELD: Contemporary Poetry and Poetics

FIELD is published twice yearly, in spring and fall. We're currently reading submissions 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 work.

Poems (2-6 at a time) should be submitted through our online Submissions 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.

Book manuscripts

Manuscripts are considered for the FIELD Poetry Series only by invitation.

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.
